Madras and Tamil drama community included scenes of ‘sunset and sunrise in the manner of Jotham Valley’ in almost all of their plays. This shows how the plays, staged by MRA, influenced Gemini Studios.
The Studios were particularly influenced by the sunset and sunrise scenes presented by MRA in their play Jotham Valley. The scenes were presented on a bare stage with a white background and a tune played on the flute. These scenes were imitated at the Studios.
