About the Book

Village life for Jyoti is simple: the people work hard, sing and live off the earth. She would rather devour a delicious meal than think about a suitable partner. But when the Inspector and his men arrive in town, things begin to sour. The Inspector's reign of terror sees him commit unspeakable acts against the village with young Jyoti in his sights, pushing everyone to breaking point.

De Vega's Fuenteovejuna is transported to contemporary India and set against a backdrop of political unrest in this adaptation by April De Angelis.

The Village premiered at Theatre Royal Stratford East, London, in September 2018.
