Light in the Village is a devastatingly effective modern parable, narrated by various storytellers.

Opening with the Goddess Kali addressing the audience in a broad Scottish accent, the play moves on to show a poor Indian family and their corrupt masters. One does bring ‘light to the village’ by harnessing it to the electricity grid, but his attitude to his ‘underlings’ seems to be the very opposite of enlightened.
