How often do children ask questions and actually get answers from adults? And how often do adults enter the magical world of questions? The play is based on Mahashweta Devi’s well known picture-storybook Why-Why Girl and celebrates the thrill of ‘WHY?’ It is the story of Moyna and at the same time the story of so many children, all who always ask the question ‘Why?’ Performed through dance and movement with live music, the play shows glimpses of their lives and of their minds.
