9780413646309: The Great Celestial Cow (Modern Plays)

A play by Sue Townsend, one of Britain's best-selling writers

When Sita and her children leave India to join her husband in England, she is forced to sell her cow, but she keeps her milking bucket in the hope that she will be able to buy another cow in Leicester. But England is nothing like she expected: faced with prejudice from the English and restrictions of tradition from her family, Sita clings to the dream of the cow and some sense of her own identity.
"The Great Celestial Cow is a little gem...It's very funny, touching, telling and moving...here is a story with much to say...I kept bursting into spontaneous applause." Robin Thornber, Guardian
