Hidden Fires

Synopsis:
A man confesses that he has 'stamped out' countless 'hidden fires' - human lives that are less than human to him, merely faceless threats to his own security - and then finds himself on the receiving end of the same ruthless treatment. Taken from a series of five, powerful, hard-hitting monologues in the the playwright tackles head-on issues of violence, intolerance of others, narrow concepts of community and nation, each with a twist that lifts it into the realm of real Drama.

Mating Game, The

Synopsis:
Six contestants, three women, three men, prepare to face the final round of a TV game-show designed to help themselves win a mate and a dowry - if they're lucky. If they're unlucky, they face forfeits including torture and death, live in front of an audience of millions. the subtext of the play is the practice known euphemistically in the Indian press as "Dowry Death" in which young brides who have brought insufficient dowries are murdered by their husbands and in-laws, frequently by being burned alive, so that the man can marry again and gain a fresh dowry.
