Synopsis

A Fine Balance by Sudha Bhuchar Bhuchar, Kristine Landon-Smith

Based on the Booker-shortlisted novel by Rohinton Mistry and adapted by Sudha Bhuchar and Kristine Landon-Smith, this programme text edition of A Fine Balance is published to coincide with Tamasha Theatre Company's 2007 revival and tour of the hit play. India, 1975, and a callous government has declared a State of Emergency. In these uncertain times a spirited Parsi widow determined to avoid a second marriage takes a student boarder and two Hindu tailors into her ramshackle flat. The four strangers whose lives have become inextricably linked find themselves crossing divides of caste, class and religion to form the most unexpected of friendships. Produced by Tamasha - creator of the groundbreaking East is East and the award-winning musical Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings and a Funeral - A Fine Balance was first seen at Hampstead Theatre in 2006, where it enjoyed a sell-out run. 'it tells a grim tale with wit, warmth and a keen eye for the join between public policies and private lives' The Times**** 'nothing short of a miracle' Sunday Telegraph 'a moving but unsentimental homage to endurance, asking for no pity, only understanding' Sunday Times
