Born into prostitution and a caste system that held down even the most ambitious, Nati Binodini (1863–1941) defied all odds to become a leading figure on the Bengali stage. Based on the title character's autobiography, this work from Theatre & Television Associates of New Delhi, created and directed by Amal Allana, shows how strength of character can carry one woman far beyond the circumstances of her birth. The Hindu calls it one of Delhi's "most outstanding productions…not to be missed." Performed in Hindi with English surtitles.
