Written by – Girish Karnard, Directed by – Vashisth Upadhyay Theatre group –Nat Chaupal
Play depends on a scene in the Mahabharata, where Yayati, one of the precursors of the Pandavas, is given the scourge of untimely maturity by his dad in-law, Shukracharya, who is angered by Yayati’s treachery. Yayati could reclaim this revile just on the off chance that somebody was eager to trade his childhood with him. It is his child, Pooru, who at long last offers to do this for his dad.
The play looks right now of emergency that Pooru’s choice flashes, and the problem it presents for Yayati, Pooru, and Pooru’s young spouse.
Yayati is Girish Karnad’s first play that promptly settled his capacity to transform an epic story into an energizing sensational affair. In this play, King Yayati’s story from the Mahabharata turns into a crazy ride of occasions, started off by one sexual experience. Set against a foundation of desire, envy and social bias, six in number characters battle to affirm their own particular rights.
