London, today: A rain-delayed women's cricket match between India and England leaves tensions bare. Pent up in the locker room all day, neither side can play nice anymore. Calcutta, near the turn of the 19th Century: Two British imperialists debate the rules of engagement, the problem of women, and the trouble with mosquitoes, as famine ravages East India. An all-female cast takes the stage for this energetic, sharp-witted tale of sport, gender politics, and colonialism, interrogating the present by rethinking the past.
