The thrilling play about birth and motherhood in a brave new world that smashed box offices and captivated UK audiences in 2017 is now coming to a (smart) screen near you!

 

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?

Blog post: "In a frightening climate when we need to speak up, stand up, value and protect all marginalised communities more than ever, I hope this play is a small reminder of those workers, who risk their bodies and lives to keep ours turning." - Satinder Chohan
