Auditions for FREE OUTGOING

Bay Area Drama Company announces auditions for


A Play in English by Anupama Chandrasekhar
Directed by Basab Pradhan

Auditions will be held on Saturday, August 20th in the Mission area in Fremont.
Performances are from Dec 3-11, Sunnyvale Theatre.


Chennai, India. Present Day. Deepa is every parent's dream. A star student. Hard working. Loved by her teachers. Headed towards a bright future.

Deepa is also that unlucky girl.  The one whose sole sexual indiscretion with a boy in her class is captured on a cell phone camera and goes viral. Aspirations and hopes are crushed as she becomes the target of her community's outrage. And then a nation's outrage.

In this age of unfettered technology and a generation that is fighting to define itself against a backdrop of traditional conservatism, Free Outgoing is a lens into every parent's nightmare.

First performed at the Royal Court Theatre, Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, Sloane Square, London on 8 November, 2007.
