    In Muthaland, Minita Gandhi takes us on the epic coming-of-age journey of a first-generation Indian-American woman. The life of a young woman is forever changed on a trip to India during which she unearths family secrets, encounters a prophet, is the victim of an assault, and ultimately discovers her voice within a culture of silence. The familiar and the foreign swap roles in this dark comedy about culture, identity, spirituality, and sexuality. Inspired by true events, Muthaland navigates the tragic and magical on the way to a new sense of home.

    Minita is a graduate of PCPA's two-year actor conservatory.
    Muthaland was originally created and developed in part with Silk Road Rising, Jamil Khoury: Founding Artistic Director, Malik Gillani: Founding Executive Director, 2016 Victory Gardens Theatre, 2016, and was part of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, 2016. Muthaland was originally produced at 16th Street Theater, Ann Filmer, Artistic Director, 2017.
