by KATE ATTWELL directed by DIANE PAGE
We’re not going down without a fight
Lord’s, present day. It’s the Women’s Cricket World Cup: England versus India. There’s a rain delay. Stuck in the same locker room together, tensions mount, ambitions are laid bare and a whole new tactical game begins. Calcutta, 1800 (or thereabouts). Two British administrators in early 19th century India encounter challenges on the field of play that threaten the entire regime.
In this game of integrity and power, past and present collide. Kate Attwell’s funny and provocative play explores and explodes the mythology of fair play.
Diane Page returns to the OT following her “excellent revival” (Financial Times) of Athol Fugard’s Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act, and her “electrifying” (The Stage) production of Dael Orlandersmith’s Yellowman.
