Please note this book can take up to 10 days to be dispatched.

In a crumbling Calcutta home, two sisters are forced to come to terms with their mother’s secret history. In this funny and moving play, award-winning writer Shelley Silas examines how family and culture, time and distance, influence our sense of who we are. Set in the Indian Jewish community, it explores conflicts between old and new, east and west, tradition and truth. If the past is another country, where is home? 

Calcutta Kosher was produced by the Kali Theatre Company and toured the UK in February and March 2004.
