(Over 16s)

The play, by turns funny and poignant, examines the role of the sari in the lives of the 5 characters; from an old Asian woman whose saris are like her second skin, a young mother giving birth in a war zone wrapping her twin babies in her wedding sari, a Malaysian historian connects the sari with mythology, a transgender man reflects on his girlfriend’s sari obsession, a low caste weaver and a character who contemplates the sari in her final hours.

Whose Sari Now? will have a rich and eclectic visual style that will be bold and powerful and takes you beyond the Bollywood wet sari.
