On Friday 11 November there will be a post show discussion. Six yards of cloth, wound round tight Or draped seductively Or practically, for breastfeeding Or pulled between thighs to walk like a man Or wildly thrown together, with Doc Martin boots A modest proposal or a political act or a defiant one 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 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. "Rarely have I seen such talent or such intimate contact with the pulse of this nation" The Independent on Curry Tales
