Rakshas by the Tadpole Repertory

Rakshas by the Tadpole Repertory

Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romantic | Hindi | Age 12+


A play by the Tadpole Repertory adapted from “The Dragon” by Yevgeny Schwartz. Written and adapted by Irawati Karnik. Supported by the India Foundation for the Arts through its Arts Practices programme.  

A wandering warrior arrives at a strange little town that has been under the monstrous rule of a rakshas for hundreds of years. When our self-proclaimed hero, Veera, takes it upon herself to free the townspeople by killing the monster, they hate the idea and ridicule her instead. With the odds stacked against her, our young hero prepares for a fantastic battle. Along the way, she finds trustworthy friends, magical weapons and love - exactly what she expected to find on a hero's journey - but will it be enough to save the day? Rakshas brings together fantasy, comedy, romance and satire to tell a story of a people trying to decide what their freedom is worth.
