Village life for Jyoti is simple: the people work hard, sing and live off the earth. She would much rather devour a delicious meal than think about a suitable partner. But when the Inspector (Art Malik) and his men arrive back in town, things quickly begin to sour. The Inspector's reign of terror sees him commit unspeakable acts against the village with young Jyoti in his sights, pushing everyone to breaking point. Will she dare scorn his advances?

This new adaptation by April De Angelis of Lope De Vega's Fuenteovejuna, is transported to contemporary India, and set against a backdrop of political unrest.Nadia Fall directs The Village which opens her inaugural season as Artistic Director of Stratford East.

The Village is a call for courage in the face of tyranny and a warning shot to corrupt authority.
