About this show

Vijay Tendulkar's play, "Sakharam Binder," was first performed in 1972 and subsequently banned in India in 1974. Set in a small Indian village, the play centers on the household of a single man: Sakharam Binder. Binder offers shelter to abandoned and outcast women. This seemingly grand act of generosity comes with the burden of imposed household rules that either the women can endure or choose to return to the hunger, brutality and certain death of the streets.
