Abstract

Why did audiences for Ramlila, which recounts how Lord Ram rescued his wife from the ten-headed demon king, wane in Trinidad in the 1970s and ’80s? English narration along with the traditional Hindi verses, topical improvisation, new methods of script development, and breaking old gender and caste restrictions have revived the genre and led to the founding of 10 new troupes between 1995 and 2005.
