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 anonymity 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 about two parallel stories: one of 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.
