Bangalore Event: SHE-HE-SHEY A play in English-Hindi-Bengali

24th June 2017

Gillo Theatre Repertory, Mumbai presents SHE-HE-SHEY A play in English-Hindi-Bengali

Inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s SHEY

Duration – 1Hour and 20 Minutes

She-He-Shey is a stage adaptation of Tagore’s book ‘Shey’ (Se), a collection of stories of extraordinary adventures, created for his nine-year old granddaughter Nandini. To keep the tales spinning he employs ‘Shey’, a person constituted entirely of words and rather talented at concocting tales. This stage adaptation is a free flowing response to the stories in the book Shey, set in a collage along with poems and paintings by Tagore.

Originally commissioned by Happenings Kolkata for Rabindra Utsav 2013, this play has also been performed at Santiniketan and at Nandikar’s National Theatre Festival.
