This article jumped out at me while browsing some theater news today. At first I clicked on it because I found the premise to be quirky and amusing, but after viewing the text and video within, it got the dramaturgical gears turning in my brain. In short, the play is about the Hindu god Ganesh traveling back to Nazi Germany to reclaim his holy symbol — the swastika. Listening to the director discuss his company’s new creation was rather interesting, and hearing Hindu leaders enter a theatrical conversation with the work was also intriguing (even if their reaction was quite negative). Give it a look, it will certainly provoke many questions/thoughts of your own.
