Ticket Information:

A Fine Balance
Adapted by Sudha Bhuchar and Kristine Landon-Smith.
Based on the novel by Rohinton Mistry.

"A magnificent piece of storytelling." - The Guardian

In 1975, a struggling Parsi widow, determined to keep her independence, sets up shop in a tiny apartment, hiring two Hindu tailors and taking on a boarder to make ends meet. From this unlikely gathering of strangers, an accidental family forms, each member fleeing the bondage of their past while creating rich – yet perilous – new bonds over their shared experience of a country in political flux.

Based on Rohinton Mistry’s celebrated, Booker-shortlisted novel, A Fine Balance is a sweeping panorama of India’s tumultuous State of Emergency, punctuated with breathtaking moments of human compassion, spirit and heroism.

A monumental saga of ordinary people resilient through extraordinary change, this vibrant and thought-provoking play sees history come to life – and the stories of the voiceless resonate more powerfully than ever. Don’t miss this epic theatre event.

Presented by: Auckland Theatre Company and Prayas Theatre
