The Ramayana is an ancient epic from India. It's the story of love, of passion, of jealousy, but is also the story of power and what happens to those who yield it.


While the Ramayana exists in many forms (as poems, as plays, as novels, even as comic books) it has long been told orally as part of a storytelling tradition. You will hear Mrs. Duprey's expounding, then choose a small scene of your own and write your own version of what happened in the story.
