Adapted from the 1967 play by Israel Horovitz, this absurdist drama is still a perfect reflection of the world we live in. Standing behind a white line, five people fight for the first spot in the queue, and their attempts get more and more callous as the play proceeds. A cricket fanatic who feels hard work deserves it’s due, a Rahman fan who manipulates everyone with his rigmarole, a conniving female who uses her sexuality to lure the men out of line, her confused, germophobic husband, and a selfish elderly gentleman who looks out only for himself - each character, though different in their ways of thinking, have one goal which is to come first. So, who will win? Who will have the last laugh? Who will be at the front of the line?
