Summary

Ramayana
David Farr
A dramatic retelling of the Indian epic

Exiled from the serene palaces of their homeland and plunged into the deep forest of Southern India, the passionate love of Rama and Sita is put to the test as demons, goddesses and an army of monkeys do battle for their hearts.

Playwright David Farr’s new retelling of India’s oldest and greatest epic dramatises the battle between spiritual austerity and secular freedom, and celebrates the transcending power of human love.

Ramayana was first presented at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, in February 2007, in a Lyric Hammersmith, West Yorkshire Playhouse and Bristol Old Vic production.
