Maia Morgenstern in Colombo Calling

This wonderful lady of Romanian cultural life needs no introduction whatsoever. Ms Morgenstern plays the role of Varthini Balakrishnan, the wise and sometimes sarcastic mother of the Colombo family. She is probably the strongest figure in the play, as she is comparable with a sequoia tree, with her roots deeply grown into the earth of the island. While her children, Shahan (Gabriel Calinescu) and Thushanti (Anca Constantin) are still in search of their identity, not knowing whether their life is in troubled Sri Lanka or elsewhere, she knows exactly who she is and why she will never leave Colombo, no mater how tough life gets.
