Mandala Theatre is now performing a new play called "Hechhakuppa". This play will be staged from Falgun 16- Chaitra 2, 2070 (Feb 28 – March 16, 2070) every day at 5.15 pm (Except Mondays).
The story of "Hechhakuppa" is a popular folk story in Kirat Culture. The literal meaning of the word "Hechhakuppa" is Orphan. According to the story, Hechhakuppa had two elder sisters. Despite their poverty, they had even a great deal of love and care to their brother. In the same village of theirs, there was female demon who would feed on the small children. This demon had a unique capability of changing her looks and character. This demon wants to eat Hechhakuppa but due to the protection of his sister it was impossible. But as the story proceeds, these sisters have to leave the village and Hechhakuppa is alone. So the story now is focused to show how Hechhakuppa saves himself from the demon and also how he searches his sisters.
This play is scripted by Rajan Mukarang and is directed by Ms. Pashupati Rai. Ms. Rai is a theatre artist herself and is involved in theatre for more than 10 years now.
