By Satinder Chohan
A powerful new drama about sport, nationality and belonging, with a haunting love story at its heart.
From the red dust of Punjab to the Olympic stadiums of Europe this intense new drama explores the Indian sport of Kabaddi and its place on the world stage. Against a backdrop of Indian revolutionary fervour, two players compete for a place in the team for the 1936 Berlin Olympics and for the love of Azadeh, a freedom fighter and outcast with a troubled past. Structured like the two halves of a Kabaddi game, this play compelling depicts the raw physicality of combat in a compelling story of the struggle to win.
