In this provocative play masquerading as a stand-up comedy routine, an Indian intersex person, or hijra, explores history, mythology, gender roles... and high school. Brahman/i - funny, cynical, inventive and intensely charismatic - takes on more than a dozen unforgettable characters in a fascinating life story that most of us can barely even begin to imagine.
The production team for Brahman/I includes Roger Wykes (scenic design), Jeremy Floyd (costume design),Sarah Hughey (lighting design), and Josh Horvath (sound design).
