This classic 19th century farce exposes the religious hypocrisy and widespread prejudices of the time, which unfortunately, are still prevalent today. Bhaktoprashad is an elderly Hindu landlord, who makes a great show of being devout, but secretly lusts after young women, and in particular the wife of his poor Muslim tenant. The play highlights the gulf between Bhaktoprashad’s ‘piety’ and his actual behaviour. After several twists and turns in the plot, Bhaktoprashad is exposed as a hypocrite. It is a morality tale of covetousness and charity in which the guilty protagonist finally gets his just deserts.
