    Event Description:

    Muthaland by Minita Gandhi begins on August 31 and runs through October 7. Both Blizzard '67 and Into the Beautiful North sold out within the first two weeks of performances, so we encourage you to buy tickets now online or call (708) 795-6704 x107 to experience Minita's powerful and life-affirming 85-minute journey. 

    About Muthaland
    While foraging through her parents’ basement, Minita discovers her father’s worn suitcase from his very first journey to the United States, with a single statement scribbled in black Sharpie: “When I die, discard this bag if you like, until then it stays.”

    This sparked a curiosity leading to vulnerable interviews where her parents shared stories they had never spoken of before. By weaving their stories with her own life-changing journey to India in 2009 for her brother’s arranged marriage, Muthaland shares the magic of Minita’s journey to India, full of prophets, ritual, the convergence of American and Indian cultures and finding one’s own voice within a culture of silence.
