Chasing Hares

Author(s): Sonali Bhattacharyya
Company: Young Vic and Theatre Uncut

By day, machine operator Prab struggles to survive the precarity and brutality of his factory job in West Bengal; by night he writes stories for his baby daughter Amba.

When a popular actress recruits him to write a play for her, Prab seizes the opportunity to expose the injustice of factory conditions and the rumors of child exploitation. But in his fight for change, is he ready to risk his future, his family and even his own life?

Chasing Hares is designed by Moi Tran, with lighting design by Jai Morjaria, video design by Akhila Krishnan, sound design by Donato Wharton, composition by Sarathy Korwar and movement direction by Chi San Howard.
