Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace

Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace



After two years away, Jayati Bhatia donned the green saree to reprise her unforgettable role as the orphan girl who grows to become the matriarch of one of the more powerful families in newly Independent India. The play about love, family, responsibility and the strength of a woman who 'wraps the family in the web of her providing' has been directed by Q.

Our return to Prithvi on the 13th and 14th of October were greeted with full houses. It left us wondering why we had let the play take that sabbatical in the first place. A very big thank you to all the mothers in the audience in who came in to join Khatija on her trip down memory lane.

We also performed at the International Women's Writer's Conference at the Mumbai University's Kalina Campus. We played in the lovely Guzdar Auditorium in Pherozeshah Mehta Bhavan, and were thrilled with the response. The festival is a great idea and we hope these venues continue to stage work from across the city.

Now that we have tasted blood, it looks like Khatija will be on the road a bit more. Watch out for a special show where we serve her famous Khichda at the end! Keep an eye on this space for more details.
