SETU presents Seven Steps Around the Fire

A housewife unwillingly entangled herself in solving the murder of a member of the Indian Hijra and transgender community. In the process, she uncovers the plight of the most oppressed section of the Indian society whose very existence is shrouded with ancient myths and social prejudices. 

Partially supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. 


Content Note: This performance includes gunshot sound effects and strong language.

Saturday 4 PM Panel Discussion: SETU, in its path to bridge the knowledge gap, presents a panel discussion shedding light on the Indian Hijra community. The atrocities, the injustice, the marginalization, and the social malaise that still exist in India are viewed from across the globe with real- life experiences shared by the South-Asian trans-community in the United States. This panel discussion complements SETU’s play Seven Steps around the Fire, a thriller by Mahesh Dattani. 

The panel discussion takes place between the two Saturday performances of Seven Steps Around the Fire. No additional ticket is required, but capacity may be limited.

SETU is a 501(c)(3) non-profit theater group in the Boston area. SETU means “bridge” in several Indian languages and our mission is to build bridges between Indian and Western cultures through the medium of theater.
