Based on Eacute;mile Zola's Theacute;regrave;se Raquin, this classic tale of adultery and murder is skilfully transposed to a small town in present-day Punjab Raj works as a minor railway clerk and is married to his cousin, Rani. They live with his mother who runs the family cloth shop. Their family life is mundane and uneventful, punctuated by their weekly visits from the Doctor, to play Carrom board games. One day, Raj invites Nitin, his old school friend and a bohemian artist, into their home. Like a moth to a flame, Rani finds herself inextricably drawn to Nitin's apparent passion for life, unleashing a chain of events with tragic consequences.Following the success of Balti Kings, East is East and Fourteen Songs...;, this is the new production from Tamasha, Britain's leading Asian theatre company, published to tie in with the Lyric Hammersmith premiere in October 2001.
