The Fire and the Rain
1835 14th Street, NW Washington
The creative team that brought D.C. audiences The Ramayana brings to life a dynamic family drama drawn from the Indian epic The Mahabharata. Girish Karnad's The Fire and the Rain follows pious Paravasu and his isolated, lonely wife, as well as Paravasu's passionate brother, who dares to pursue a forbidden marriage. In this mystical exploration of humanity, you'll encounter a mask that possesses its owner, a tortured demon-soul on a mission and a supernatural act of compassion. The Fire and the Rain embraces spectacle and spirituality to spark an explosive story of ritual and rebellion. This inspiring work by one of India's most celebrated contemporary playwrights has its North American premiere at The Source. Constellation Theatre Company's Allison Arkell Stockman directs and global-minded percussionist Tom Teasley provides live music throughout the performance.
