MAATI

The Drama School Mumbai (DSM) will stage its annual student's production on 9th March 2018 at 7 pm at the school's venue located at Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh, Charni Road East.

The play opened on 3rd March 2018.

The production is a Hindi adaptation by Neha Sharma of Fedrico Garcia Lorca's famous play YERMA.

In a world where a woman's value is determined by the capacity for first bearing and then rearing children, what’s a barren woman to do? Where does an incessant obsession with fertility, sterility, life and death lead? How far can she bend before she snaps?

This year's annual DSM student production takes a hard look at all these questions through MAATI.

Some speculate the challenges to Christian morality thrown up by the noted play in 1935 were the most direct cause of Lorca’s assassination during the Spanish Civil War.

The contemporary adaptation brings the talent and training of the students under the direction of Mahesh Dattani. He is a Sahitya Akademi award winning director, playwright and actor.


Entry Free. First Come First for Ages 16 years and above.
