Lady Lalkunwar by Sitanshu Yashaschandra


Fanatika Theatre Club presented Sitanshu Yashaschandra’s Lady Lalkunwar on October 8, 2011 at Jayshankar “Sundari” Hall. This play is an original adaptation of Italian playwright Eduardo de Filippo’s Filumena Marturano.

Lady Lalkunwar is the story of Sir Amarshi Narottam’s kept Lalbai. Lalbai has been Sir Amarshi’s kept for 30 years and one day manages to trick this extremely rich man into marrying her. Following this marriage, she begins to live as his official wife in his house and Sir Amarshi cannot bear this. He desperately wants to get rid of her as he has long been planning to marry another woman, namely Rati Zaveri, who is both young and beautiful and comes from a reputed family.

Lalbai’s condition of leaving Sir Amarshi’s house if Sir Amarshi officially adopts her three sons gives him another shock and gives the play a new twist. The play is the journey of this courageous and honest woman from Lalbai to Lalkunwar, Lady Lalkunwar.
The play was very well received by both the audience and the media. Please contact Fanatika theatre Club if you want us to stage this play.
