"I trusted a king, and put myself in his hands. He had a godlike face and a heart of stone."
Originally noted in the classic Indian epic Mahabharata, Jashodhara Sen's and Nolan Carey's adaptation of "Shakuntala" tells the timeless story of desire, love, loss and recognition between a king and a beautiful young maiden. With romance, innuendo and even a tragic curse, this radical new reconceptualization of "Shakuntala" is a spectacular blend of mythology, representation and theatricality.
Jashodhara Sen directs a cast of CU Theatre & Dance's talented student performers. Don't wait to purchase tickets! Due to limited seating, tickets sell fast. But in the intimate Loft Theatre, every audience member gets a front row experience to this play.
