Here is a note on the play from the director –
Think Ramayana, and you think heroes. Mostly men. What about the  women who lurk in the shadows of the great epic?   Gowri Ramnarayan takes a close look at Urmila, Manthara, Surpanakha, Tara, Mandodari, and the forgotten Shanta, as individuals in their own right.
As the six characters struggle to make sense of their lives, the audience discovers that these ‘epic women’ belong to our world – right here, right now.
