"Yuma (युमा)" is a play directed by veteran nepali theatre actor Ms. Srijana Subba and written by popular nepali writer Mr. Yug Pathak. Originally, Yuma is the most important goddess from Limbu-mythology who represents teachings about livelihoods and freedom. This play puts Yuma into today's Nepal and confronts her with challenges, such as families not accepting inter-cast love-marriages, lovers growing apart and people having to search work abroad, rather than in Nepal itself.
Yuma ends up becoming a community-activist especially dedicated to creating safe spaces for females. Her husband, who is working abroad, however, is not very pleased with his wife, who does not conform to more conservative ideas of "womanhood". In the end, Yuma has to make a difficult decision.
