Leftovers (Shillak) - a rehearsed reading
Pune is a city on the move, an engine powering the economic expansion of India; but what happens when development and innovation leave ordinary people struggling to catch up. A play about a traditional Indian family, left behind by the modern world.
Directed by Simon Godwin.
