The Vassar Experimental Theater presented The Wheel, by Bangladeshi playwright Selim al-Deen, directed by drama professor Denny Partridge.  Partridge directed The Wheel, an adaptation by Steve Friedman of Syed Jamil Ahmed’s translation of Al-Deen’s Bengali play, Chaka, at its American premiére at Antioch College in 1990, before coming to Vassar.  Al-Deen’s play combined traditional story-telling methods of folk theater with more experimental forms.
