Premiered by the Traverse Theatre at the 1991 Edinburgh Festival and also to be staged at the Hampstead Theatre, London, this play arose from the extended visit John Clifford made to India. The play opens with the goddess Kali addressing the audience in a broad Scots accent and moves on to present a parable about a poor Indian family and their corrupt masters - one of whom seeks to bring "light to the village" by harnessing it to the electricity grid, but whose attitude to his underlings is the opposite of enlightenment.
