Written by Mahesh Dattani and directed by Praveen Vaidyanathan, the play touches on the topic of religion and whether it's the true final frontier, the great divide or whether it is conviction, hope or destitution that drives religious fervor. Set in small town India after a Hindu-Muslim riot, the story is told through a Hindu family's predicament when two Muslim boys stumble into their house seeking refuge. The family is comprised of a mother who has seen plenty of communal strife in her time; her sensitive son; a devout daughter-in-law; a modern age granddaughter; and a couple of men, one an aggressive protector of Muslim rights and beliefs and one who wrestles with his own self-inflicted shame. The play dares the audience to: Exhume history. Experience consequence. Envision change. Tickets available at www.eastindianfollies.org by emailing, online at www.sulekha.com, or by phone at 208-890-2056.

Price: $10 advance, $8 for students; $12 at the door
