WOMEN
OF TAGORE

To celebrate International Women's Day,  we brought three of Rabindranath Tagore’s best known female characters to life: Debjani, Charulata, and Nandini. 

Nobel Laureate Tagore writes in a way that is both epic and relatable. From the inhabitants of the Underworld to those of a dystopian future, these women experience love and loss and have to make sacrifices. Along the way, these strong women will make you question what it means to be women in a man's world. 

Join us, and let's raise a glass to these literary characters who have challenged us and captured our imaginations and our stages for more than 100 years.
