"Open Cast" is a play about people displaced and how it affects them and their newly forged relationships with strange people and places. What do the displaced lose? Self-Identity and Autonomy or Freedom? What are their problems? Language, Food or being an Outsider? It's not just the people but their culture which also has to suffer the wrench.
Open Cast" is two parallel stories: one of the new arrivals in the affluent capital city of Delhi looking for a better life; the other of people forced to endure evacuation from the coal-mining town of Dhanbad.
