Two sisters return to the crumbling Calcutta home of their childhood. Family secrets are revealed and the women are forced to re-examine their relationship with their mother and the reality of their own lives in the light of a hidden past.
Set in the Indian Jewish community, this funny and moving play explores conflicts between old and new, east and west, tradition and truth. Shelley Silas examines how family and culture, time and distance, influence our sense of who we are. If the past is another country, where is home?
