The adaptation of this Sanskrit classic is by HSU professor and playwright Margaret Thomas Kelso who describes it as a “very sweet fairy tale--with the usual ominous complications-- that everyone can enjoy, including children.”

With a premiere adaptation, original music by HSU Music professor Brian Post, and directed by HSU professor Rae Robison, this is a unique production of a popular favorite in India seldom seen anywhere in the U.S.
