Made in India - Rehearsal Diary: Week 1

Posted on 10 January 2017

Rehearsals are now underway for our new B2 production, Made in India, a thrilling new play about motherhood and blood ties between women and nations. Taking to our B2 stage from Tues 24 Jan – Sat 4 Feb, this brand new play is a compelling drama that brings to the forefront the current global debate on surrogacy in an absorbing and entrancing setting.

Set in a surrogacy clinic in Gujarat, India’s westernmost state, three woman meet, Londoner Eva, village girl Aditi and clinic owner, Dr Gupta. Eva is in motherhood’s last chance saloon, for Aditi – who is also a dairy worker and single mother – surrogacy is a lifeline out of poverty and for businesswoman Dr Gupta, it’s all just another transaction. But with the backdrop of profound global forces, can it possibly remain that simple?

In the first in a series of rehearsal diary videos, the cast share their thoughts on Made in India, they discuss their biggest challenge as actors and reflect back on their first week of rehearsal. Keep a look out for the second rehearsal video coming soon!
