PARTS OF PARTS & STITCHES

Genre: Drama
Written by Rita Sachdeva, Directed by Cat Parker

 

A joyous, colorful occasion, a wedding day in India, 1947, the patchwork of two families eager with
anticipation for their pending unification. In PARTS OF PARTS & STITCHES, Yamuna and Jiwan
prepare for their lives and future together in a small village of what is soon to become Pakistan. Soon
after the couple celebrates their matrimony, the reality of the political and religious upheaval forced on
the country by Britain’s abandonment, becomes apparent. The violence of man against man, Hindus
against Muslims, erupts in a horrific massacre. With perseverance and a will to survive, Yamuna
desperately attempts to stitch back the pieces of her life.
 
PARTS OF PARTS & STITCHES uses magical realism to show the horrific events that occurred
during Partition.

About the Company: Manhattan Theatre Works

Started producing thought-provoking new plays in the Fall of 2006 with Folie A Deux: Insanity in Pairs written by founder and Artistic Director David Stallings, directed by founder and former Executive Director Cristina Alicea, produced by founder Antonio Minino. What started as a trio of like-minded artists has grown into a family of over 50 talented MTWorkers dedicated to developing new ground-breaking diverse plays from around the world. MTWorks is dedicated to discovering new plays that challenge our perception of diversity (ethnic, economic, geographic, gender, sexuality or creed). We foster today’s innovative playwrights who boldly take risks in theme, structure, time-period and location by collaborating with exceptional theatre artists to develop their plays through our Living Room Series, Newborn Festival and mainstage productions. www.mtworks.org
