Sirumarani tells the story of a woman who struggles to secure her womanhood amongst her relationship and responsibilities. The play is written in a folklore style based on the Western part of Nepal and carries different love stories as its base. There is a fisherman in a village. Once, he traps a golden fish in his fishing-net. He takes that fish to his home and finds it to be a tremendously beautiful lady. He comes to know that the lady is actually a cursed snake-fairy. The fisherman marries the lady and they have a baby daughter- Siru. After getting the baby, the snake-fairy leaves her husband and daughter behind and goes to her own world. A blind prophet, forecasting his daughter’s good fortune, says that Siru will become the queen of a powerful king of the world. But Siru falls in a love with a poor porter in her youth. Knowing about the forecasting, her father is furious and Siru ends up marrying a powerful king instead. However, she soon learns that she married the king in the body of his son. Siru entangles herself in a dilemma to recognize her actual husband. She tries to find out the solution and this endeavor of Siru collapses the royal palace which is portrayed in the play as a metaphor of male ego.
