What is the play about? : Since 1995, 270,940 Indian farmers, driven into debt by corporate agriculture, have committed suicides. These farmers bought genetically modified seeds that don’t reproduce. In this sensual and macabre revenge fantasy, what goes around comes around for bio-tech CEO Darren Warren when Asha, the widow of one of these farmers, goes to work in his home and care for his pregnant wife, Hope.
