    It's an uncomplicated short play but it kept me guessing Some day I hope to see this script enactedEven though the work is short in length Mr Dattani effectively conveys the thoughts feelings conflicts of his main characters He portrays traditional progressive outlooks to a taboo subject and effectively weaves a murder mystery into this setting All in all an interesting read
