This comic-book infused girl-gang thriller chronicles the adventures of Kalki, a young girl who may or may not be the final avatar of Vishnu, come to rid the world of demons and evil.
[Part of the DISPLACED HINDU GODS Trilogy: A trilogy of plays loosely based on the trinity of Hindu deities- Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva- displaced into contemporary immigrants in the West. Each play is in a different style: stand-up comedy routine, girl-gang thriller, post-colonial fantasy. Each play can stand alone, but they co-exist in a common universe where displacement, identity, post-coloniallism, puberty, are explored through the lenses of creation, survival, and destruction.]
