TREE OF SEED
A PLAY IN PROGRESS
Written by Kayhan Irani
Directed By Nandita Shenoy
Tree of Seeds is a narrative of migration and memory. A young Iranian woman appears on the docks in Yemen. She is taken in by a local Indian family on the eve of an anti-British uprising. As hostilities rise, public and personal boundaries are drawn. Embroidery traditions tell the tale of two communities bound by religion, yet separated by culture, and the history of a people in transition.
