"On the night of December 3rd 1984, Union Carbide's pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, exploded, engulfing the city in a billow of deadly poisonous fumes.  Small children fell like flies, and men and women vainly scurried for safety only to collapse, breathless and blinded by the gas. By sunset, the death toll was 2,500. By the following day, numbers had no meaning. Bhopal had became the largest peacetime gas chamber in history."
- from the preface to Bhopal by Rahul Varma
This intense, poignant play brings to life the human stories within the complex political and economic milieu that created the worst industrial disaster the world has ever known.  Premiering on the 30th anniversary of the tragedy.
