Behind the Beautiful Forevers at the National Theatre, Olivier, London

Now showing

Close to Mumbai airport on "a stretch where new India and old India collided and made new India late," is the bristling slum town of Annawadi, where violence and corruption rule. The ever expanding gap between the rich and the poor is a constant strain to the Husain family who make their living recycling discarded plastic bottles and hope to raise themselves from poverty. Starring Meera Syal, Behind the Beautiful Forevers is adapted by David Hare from Katherine Boo's non-fiction account of her time in India, where she captured the pain and heartbreaking nature of life pushed to the absolute limit.
