Theatre Passe Muraille Presents PYAASA by Anusree Roy


Set in Calcutta, Pyaasa (meaning thirsty in Hindi) tells the story of Chaya, an eleven-year-old untouchable who dreams of nothing more than learning her times tables. When Chaya’s mother begs a woman from a higher caste to give Chaya a job at a local tea stall, Chaya’s journey from childhood to adulthood begins and ends over ten days. A moving and heartfelt play, Pyaasa illustrates with subtlety and nuanced truth, the inequalities and injustices that persist through the Indian caste system. But it also speaks to anyone about the inequalities or injustices that are all around us here in Toronto.
