Full Length Play, Drama.
This play by the author of Plenty "is an ambitious work which brings together in heated discussion a young left wing journalist and a right wing expatriate Indian novelist.
The settings are a Bombay hotel where they are attending a world poverty conference and the British film studio where the Indian author's experiences are being turned into a film.
Throughout the play, life and fiction overlap. One of the issues is the sexual jealousy that arises over the men's competition for the favors of a promiscuous American actress staying at the hotel. Also on the agenda: idealism vs. cynicism; the West's arrogance in its handling of Third World problems; the alleged evils of Zionism; and the journalist's fervent belief in the necessity for change." - London Sunday Express
