There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A devastatingly effective modern parable about poverty and corruption in an Indian village.

John Clifford's play Light in the Village opens with the Goddess Kali addressing the audience in a broad Scottish accent. In the village, where poor people stay forever poor, governed by their corrupt masters, enlightenment takes many forms. Who will bring light to the village?

The play was first staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 1991.
