Vermillion / Stage Play / April 21, 2013

On April 21, 2013, some members of the Bahá'í community of Statesboro assisted with the theatrical presentation of Vermillion, a play written and produced by Mandira Chattopadhyay. Please click below for a video, photos, and additional information about the event.

DATE: April 21, 2013 TIME: 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

PLACE: Black Box Theatre, Center for Art & Theatre, Georgia Southern University.

CREDITS: Author & Producer, Mandira Chattopadhyay; Director & Narrator, Mical Whitaker; Special Guest Artist, Parama Chattopadhyay; Historical Introduction by Professor Robert Batchelor; and the Cast of Readers & Performers from Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, Georgia, and also the Chattopadhyay brothers from out of state.

DESCRIPTION: “Vermilion,” the name of this dramatic Indian stage reading, refers to the red dot on the forehead of an Indian bride; it is an auspicious sign of marriage and guarantees the social status and sanctity of marriage. This scripted theatrical production gives voice to the author’s childhood memories of her wealthy Indian parents’ unhappy marriage and how she attempted to appease them to save the “red dot” of their marriage. Caught between parental conflicts over money and color consciousness, the daughter at an early age was forced to confront and bear the tension of rigid Indian traditions and taboos.

Presented at Georgia Southern University Black Box Theater.
