Playwright Satinder Chohan’s Made In India explores the human side of a change made to the law in 2016 to ban commercial surrogacy in India. Her three-hander play begins with anxious Londoner Eva arriving a day early at a clinic in Gujarat to ask its owner Dr Gupta about the rumours in the newspaper of a possible ban and whether she can have a meeting with her surrogate candidate. Forced to comply with Eva’s wishes, the clinic’s owner introduces her to Aditi, the young village girl who’ll be carrying her baby. As they embark on their journey together it soon becomes evident that the individual stakes of a successful pregnancy aren’t just financially, but also personally higher than they had originally anticipated. Fluid direction by Katie Posner and powerful performances by the whole cast – Gina Isaac, Syreeta Kumar and Ulrika Krishnamurti – ensure the momentum of this emotionally-charged story is never lost.
