Potty Talk – by Shyamala Moorty

Synopsis: An ABCD (American Born Confused Desi) teenager arrives in India for the first time and is shocked at the lack of toilet paper.  Her bouyant personality ironically co-exists with an elderly cleaning woman who, while sweeping up after the teenager, serves up a poignant commentary about the caste system and the waste of the Western world.  Potty talk is a mix of theater and a satirical rendition of Bollywood dance.
