Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace

Thursday, 10th February at 8:30pm at NGMA
Friday, 25th February at 8pm
at NCPA Experimental

We are now 30!!

Our reception in New Delhi was cold. Not the welcome, but the weather. For us Bombaywallahs, we were wrapped up in so many layers it was hard to know who was who. Poor Jayati, however, soldiered on in her green chiffon saree and eventually got cold while she was performing.

Still the audience response was so warm, it more than made up for the freezing temperatures. It was quite a treat to perform at the NSD Fest and truly it is one of the best festivals in the country.

Meanwhile, back at base, the juggernaut is moving on.

After almost 5 years Khatijabai will be back at the NCPA Experimental. So all those in South Bombay that haven't had a chance to see the play, you now have no excuse.

Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace is the story of an 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.

Here is what the press has had to say:

The show started and what a show! One actress, Jayati Bhatia, a show stealer of the silver screen, kept the whole hall enraptured with her movements and dialogues. My heart went out to her. I wished so hard that I too could some day act like her. For one hour and fifteen minutes, we were mesmerized by Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace, a Q Theatre Production. And after the show, we all stood there and applauded for a whole 5 minutes, while Jayati just smiled back at us thanking us profusely with folded hands.” – The Assam Tribune
