"Kapil's fertile imagination is running riot, comic one moment, enlightening the next."Boston Globe
"The styles are comedy, high-school noir and magical realism. But the struggle for self-definition is always at the heart of Aditi Brennan Kapil's Displaced Hindu Gods Trilogy."The Boston Globe
"Aditi Brennan Kapil takes traditional male Hindu archetypes and feminizes them into Western situations in her remarkable new play trilogy."Lavender Magazine
"After Brahman/i goes for the funny bones and Kalki for the adrenaline glands, Shiv is a play aimed straight at the heart. And it feels as if it's the one closest to the playwright's heart."Twin Cities Pioneer Press
"All three stories are very different in style and tone, but they all have a smart sense of humor driving them, which makes them entertaining as well as thought-provoking."Twin Cities Daily Planet
"Kapil's work has been seen throughout the country and earned plenty of accolades, but the sheer audacity of creating, presenting, and pulling off three high-quality brand-new works is what makes her a clear choice for a local artist of the year honor."City Pages
The Displaced Hindu Gods Trilogy Script
This is optional.
This trilogy of plays is loosely based on the Hindu trinity of Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Sustainer and Shiva the Destroyer. The deities are displaced into contemporary immigrants in the West, creating a new cosmology for the Indian diaspora, immigrants and anyone who doesn't fit into the space that society has prescribed for them.
