Mother Teresa is Dead  

Mother Teresa is Dead $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST

An intensely topical play exploring Western guilt towards the Third World.

' You're not a saint. Saints don't exist. You're just a woman doing her best.'

Mark arrives in a village in India to try and find his wife. He doesn't understand what has driven her to abandon her young son. Jane cannot explain why she needed to escape or how she ended up looking after children in India – or what is in the bag she's been holding on to. It is hot, dusty and poor, and a long way from their comfortable life in London.

'A tough and moving drama, and one that nags away at the conscience long after you have left the theatre.'  Daily Telegraph

Cast : 2M, 2F
