Cook and clean and never be seen. Step into the mind of a woman writing the history of Shakespearean prostitute-actresses in colonial Bengal. As academic fixation turns into existential crisis, where does Shakespeare end and She begin? Apologies to the Bengali Lady, puts one Bengali woman front and center as she fights with the Shakespeare in her head to be seen, heard, known.
