CAST: Gina Isaac as Eva, Syreeta Kumar as Dr Gupta and Ulrika Krishnamurti as Aditi
Touring the UK 24 January – 8 April 2017
In a surrogacy clinic in Gujarat, three women meet. It’s Londoner Eva’s last chance for motherhood. For village girl Aditi, surrogacy is a lifeline out of poverty. For clinic owner and businesswoman Dr Gupta, it’s all just another transaction. But with the backdrop of profound global forces, can it possibly remain that simple?
‘Wonderfully sharp…the performances here are never less than enthralling.’ – ★★★★ Time Out
Strictly Arts’ artistic director Corey Campbell was invited to work as assistant director on this production as part of the Young Director scheme at Belgrade. The play is emotionally driven and addresses the culture, politics and ethics surrounding surrogacy in India. Lydia Denno’s evocative design is simple but versatile and, combined with an exceptionally strong cast, it makes for a fluid and enthralling experience.
The play is now currently on tour, for a full list of venues and dates please visit:
