A COMMUNITY theatre group will stage a Punjabi play in Castle Hill to raise public awareness and money for a charity in India that cares for unwanted girls.
Naatshaala Theatre of Peace's play, Payedaan, tells the story of the life of a poor, helpless young girl at the mercy of the world.
Cast members live at Quakers Hill, Stanhope Gardens, Kellyville, Kellyville Ridge, Parramatta and The Hills.
Payedaan (doormat in English) is an award-winning play by Jatinder Brar.
It tells about the plight of young girls and women across India locked in poverty, an issue ignited by the recent treatment of three women in India who were raped, which set off a fierce debate around the world.
The play will be performed at The Hills Centre on March 23.
It is directed by Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia and explores questions many dare not ask.
Lead actor Jay Singh said these included why young girls were allowed to be robbed of life opportunity by their lack of education, income and compassion.
Tickets cost $30, $45 and $60. Call Kulwant Khurana on 0422 886 000 or Jasbir Singh Ahluwalia on 0403 125 209.
