Shikhandi- English Play

May 19, 2017

Shikhandi- The Story of the in-betweens
English Play
by
FATS The Arts

Playwright and Director: Faezeh Jalali

Shikhandi is perhaps one of the earliest trans-characters known in mythology. Shikhandi was meant to be born male to avenge an insult in her past life as Amba. But the bigger karmic game unfolds when she is reborn female, raised male, has a sex change (thanks to a yaksha) on her wedding night when she runs away into the forest, and finally fulfils her destiny – to be the cause of Bhishma’s death. A comic, tongue-in-cheek retelling of the story of Shikhandi, mixing the traditional with the contemporary, the play questions maleness, femaleness and everything in between. The play was runner-up at the Sultan Padamsee Playwriting Awards 2016.
