in India are renamed and rebranded as they work to claw back
the cash spent by Americans crippled by debt. Chennai-based
playwright Anupama Chandrasekhar was discovered and
developed by the Royal Court's International Department. She
attended the International Residency for Young Playwrights
on a British Council-Charles Wallace India Trust fellowship
in 2000. Her first play Free Outgoing opened at the Royal
