OK Tata Bye Bye


On 16 November 2012, Andrew Gower took part in a rehearsed reading of the play OK Tata Bye Bye by Purva Naresh and directed by Lyndsey Turner at the Royal Court Theatre.

Two film makers from the UK set out to document the lives of rural Indian women who earn their money along the highway, delving into the unchartered territory of sex workers and truck drivers in a village where prostitution is legal.

Watch Indian playwright Purva Naresh talk about her play, which was originally written in Hindi, when it was performed as part of the Writers BlocFestival in Mumbai (India).
