How do you fit in a society that rejects you?

Punjab, 1914. The men go off to war and the women are left behind. An Untouchable girl fights for survival in a society that will never accept her. With her father now away in France, she is deeply vulnerable. But the war also offers opportunities – new allegiances and a new role.

A story of forgotten voices and individual struggles, set in a village in India steeped in centuries of warrior tradition and told against the backdrop of the swirling rumour-mill of local society.

A new play by Avin Shah (BBC Radio 4, Tommies), directed by Fay Lomas (The Crucible, Royal and Derngate).
