Why should you attend?
  • It is a famous Girish Karnad play.
  • We have performed 2 shows in Bengaluru and received favourable reviews.
  • A story that has been inspired by the Mahabharata.

Agni Mattu Male (1994) was written by Girish Karnad in Kannada and later translated to English as The Fire and The Rain (1997) by Karnad himself.

Among the most complex works of Karnad, it is based on the myth of Yavakri from the ancient Indian epic Mahabharata. It is known for its innovative reimagining of the epic’s characters and events. It is also a retelling of a lesser-known episode from the epic in which the Khandava forest is burned down by Agni, the fire god, with the help of Arjuna and Krishna to provide a sacrificial altar.

Karnad combines multiple myths such as these to explore contemporary social, cultural, political, and psychological issues. Symbolism and allegories add to the depth of its narrative, making it a thought-provoking yet visually stunning experience. Known for its play-within-the-play method to depict the deception of brothers against brothers and fratricide and its timeless themes, the play continues to remain a significant work in the field of Indian theatre and has been performed in multiple languages and at numerous theatre festivals.
