India is surging with global ambition . But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. 

Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.
