After a successful run at the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, Free Outgoing is revived at this larger venue.

When a well-behaved Indian girl is filmed with a boy in her classroom, the video clip spreads like a virus. Transmitted from person to person, it infects firstly the local community and then seemingly the entire country with a burning moral outrage.

Set in the fiercely conservative Tamil region of Southern India, Free Outgoing sets the rampant technology of the modern world against the conservatism of a traditional society.
