Minita Gandhi Presents "Muthaland" October 25

The life of a young woman is forever changed on a trip to India where she unearths family secrets, encounters a prophet, and ultimately discovers her voice within a culture of silence.

"Her beautifully crafted story engages the audience in her journey of self-discovery and identity," writes Chicago-Splash Magazine.

The autobiographical Muthaland, written and performed by Minita Gandhi, will be held at 7:00 p.m., October 25, in McConnell Auditorium at Central Washington University. The event is free and open to the public.

The familiar and the foreign swap roles in this powerful darkly comic performance about culture, identity, spirituality, and sexuality. Don’t miss this inspiring performance about a woman, who, no longer able to treat the topic of sexual violence as a “bad dream,” becomes empowered to share her experience with the world

Gandhi is an actress/playwright/writer/dramaturg/director who was born in Mumbai, India. Raised in the Bay Area, Minita cultivated an artistic home for herself in Chicago for over a decade before moving to Los Angeles, where she currently resides.

Muthaland is sponsored by CWU’s Diversity and Equity Center and the Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies.
