Bebe Ka Chamba



Set in 1948, in Punjab, Bebe Ka Chamba takes you into a houseful of women mourning the death of the patriarch of their family. As a consequence of the violence of Partition, four nubile daughters are bound to the house, and forbidden contact with men. The chaos of that historical moment transforms into the chaos within, as the young women battle seclusion, subjugation, rising sexual desires and a longing for freedom. Based on ‘The House of Bernarda Alba’ by playwright Federico Garcia Lorca, the play is an ironic allusion between 20th century Spain and 21st century India.

Live songs by Madanbala Sindhu, the diva of Punjabi folk and a recording artiste.
