About this show

Gitanjali Kapila's staged screenplay reading, Double Happiness, is set against the backdrop of a small wind-swept, mid-western college, and is a loss of innocence story about three friends who tread unawares the wide, open spaces of the heart. Anisha, recently arrived from India, starts school with her traditional beliefs in love, sex and friendship intact. Savitri, her American-born cousin and roommate, doubts love and rather prefers the anonymity of the casual encounter. Together they meet a third, Kevin, susceptible to the allure of both women. Friendship turns into longing and longing into heartache. The triangle collapses, throwing all three into free-fall with no obvious place to land.
