Cricket's past & present collide in this compelling new play

It makes the whole of western history make sense, this weather.

Lord’s, present day. It’s the Women’s Cricket World Cup: England versus India. There’s a rain delay. Stuck in the same locker room together, tensions mount, ambitions are laid bare and a whole new tactical game begins. Calcutta, 1800 (or thereabouts). Two British administrators in early 19th century India encounter challenges on the field of play that threaten the entire regime.
