Geeta Gidwani is a modern American girl who’s not interested in the kind of arranged marriage that brought her parents together. She wants to fall head over heels in love with the kind of passion she’s seen in Bollywood movies, or her favorite show Friends. On a trip to an Indian temple with her family, Geeta meets Manish … and finds herself stranded at the corner of tradition and fairytale. A Great Dive is written and performed by Puja Mohindra, a proud Chicago native. She’s performed the show at a number of festivals, adapted it into a screenplay, and is currently working on adapting it into a novel. Now you can check out this Silk Road Rising production of her one-woman show at Pierce Hall.
