THE POST OFFICE: Suman Mukhopadhyay presents Tagore for the 21st-century stage

7:30 PM, October 28, Saturday, in Lincoln Hall Theater

3:30 PM, November 5, in Channing Murray Foundation (seating begins at 3:00 PM)

 The performance of the play will be based on two texts: Tagore’s original 1912 play The Post Office, and Vivek Narayan’s play Walking to the Sun: A Play on Tagore’s Post Office, which connects Tagore’s play with wartime Poland, where it was performed in translation. Following Narayan’s text, Mukhopadhyay will present a split stage, one area for the Warsaw Ghetto (the representative character is Janusz Korczak, a historical figure) and one for Amal’s home in the Indian village.
