The hustle, the struggle, the pain, the joy and the suffering — what is it all for? The playwright raises this question in the midst of an illiterate group of villagers in a remote part of India. By placing them in this environment they are freed from the technological trappings of a “developed world.” Through this farcical tale, we learn that even at this level humans seem to have lost the ability to be spontaneous.
