The play ‘Halya’, is a new perspective on the character Ahalya, from the Ramayana.
It is a play about being yourself and being unapologetic about it, accepting your own flaws and embracing it. It is about breaking norms, stereotypes and prejudices that exist in the society that cage you and doesn’t allow you to be yourself.
The play is based on the mythological story of Ahalya (which means pure and unploughed in a sexual connotation) but the play is called ‘Halya’ which means a ploughed land and not a virgin.
