“This is business. No different to buying a pair of trainers.”
In a surrogacy clinic in Gujurat, three women meet.
Londoner Eva is in motherhood’s last chance saloon – her only hope is to have her eggs extracted, fertilised with her late husband’s sperm, and implanted into another woman’s womb.
For village girl Aditi, dairy worker and single mother, surrogacy is a lifeline out of poverty for herself and her own young daughters.
For clinic owner and businesswoman Dr Gupta, it’s all just another transaction.
But against the backdrop of profound global forces, can it possibly remain that simple?
A thrilling play about motherhood and blood ties between women and nations in a brave new world.
