Chasing Hares

They can’t afford for the truth to get out. He’s the one person brave enough to tell it.

By day machine operator Prab struggles to survive the precarity and brutality of his factory job in West Bengal, by night he writes stories for his baby daughter Amba. When a popular actress recruits him to write a play for her, Prab seizes the opportunity to expose the injustice of factory conditions and the rumours of child exploitation. But in his fight for change, is he ready to risk his future, his family and even his own life?

Winner of Theatre Uncut’s Political Playwriting Award, the world premiere of Sonali Bhattacharyya’s Chasing Hares is directed by Milli Bhatia (seven methods of killing kylie jenner).
