Chit Ya Pat is a Hindi adaptation of the popular Marathi play Chapa Kata. It unfolds the life of Uttara, an aged, widowed and lonely mother whose only support is her daughter Maitreyi.

The play looks at a question that often gets thrown around in society. Should parents expect their children to put their lives on hold and look after them in their old age? Are children duty bound to execute this while shelving their ambitions and dreams? Maitreyi and Uttara start off as two friends – and through the journey of the play, find their true understanding of each other as mother and daughter.

Where: Stamford Arts Centre
