About the play:
Master playwright Mohan Rakesh's Aadhe Adhoore (Half Incomplete) is the story of Savitri, the single breadwinner in her family. It is an exploration of the individual quest for completeness within the confines of the complex, intricate web that makes up human relationships. Savitri is one of Indian theatre's first feminist icons unwilling to accept as her destiny, the deep marital disappointments and unmet expectations that burden her life over the course of two decades. Is she a tragic heroine caught in her circumstances or a self-obsessed, immoral woman willing to destroy her family in the pursuit of her own selfish desires? Written in 1959, Aadhe Adhoore still powerfully resonates, bursting with relevance and immediacy in a world that continues to be torn apart by gender inequality.
