Made in India

A thrilling new play about birth and motherhood in a brave new world

Presented by Tamasha and The Belgrade Theatre in association with Pilot Theatre

Touring the UK 24 January - 8 April 2017

In a surrogacy clinic in Gujarat, three women meet.

It’s Londoner Eva’s last chance for motherhood. For village girl Aditi, surrogacy is a lifeline out of poverty. For clinic owner and businesswoman Dr Gupta, it’s all just another transaction.

But with the backdrop of profound global forces, can it possibly remain that simple?
