SUMMARY

Ash and Joy are a young British-Asian couple, just married and living with Ash's older brother Rana and his wife Megh. The happy newlyweds are dancing on the furniture but Rana and Megh are struggling to tolerate one another's company. When a seemingly innocent meeting leads to devastating consequences, someone must be punished.

Unsung is the first and only modern re-imagining of ‘Punishment’, a short story by Nobel Prize-winning Indian writer Rabindranath Tagore. Unsung relocates Tagore’s story from a patriarchal village in nineteenth century India to contemporary London and asks - how far we have really come in the struggle for gender equality?
