About

The Devi Triptych is a series that explores the contemporary reimagining of traditional Hindu tales. Join Hamilton-based artist and playwright Radha S. Menon as she presents excerpts from each play: A Brick Lane Bargain, Sita's Revenge and A Pot Made of Sand. The full-length production will be featured at the Red Beti Theatre in summer 2025.

Radha S. Menon is the recipient of the City of Hamilton’s 2020 Arts Innovation Award and the 2016 Theatre Award. Her plays, which have been produced at theatre festivals in Canada, the U.S., U.K. and India, include Blackberry, Sita’s Revenge, Ganga’s Ganja, Rukmini’s Gold, Rise of the Prickly Pear, The Circus, and The Washing Machine. In addition, Menon is a filmmaker and production designer for art house films, including Nayan & The Evil Eye, (Design Award, Here Be Dragons Int. Film Festival 2015).

Radha will take the stage in the Fisher Gallery for a dynamic reading and Q&A session. Come early to explore her current exhibition: Touched by Devi.
