Based on a true story, “The Masrayana” tells of a gentle Indian farmer
legally declared dead in a scam to grab his land, and how the “dead man”
fights to regain his life and identity. As he crosses India in search
of justice, Gopal Masra meets not only his soul mate, but thousands more
who share his plight. “The Masrayana” combined story theatre narrative
with South Asian folk, modern and classical dance and live music to
create a warm, richly humane and universal modern saga.
