The first Indian indentured laborers came to the Caribbean more than150 years ago, and their traditional values have had to confront a rapidly changing world in 20th century Trinidad. "Highway in the Sun" tells the story of Tiger and Urmilla's first year of marriage away from their extended family and their struggles relating to their new Afro-Creole neighbors in the suburbs of Port of Spain. In "Home Sweet India," Johnny is dismayed by his loss of culture and threatened by the emergence of Creole nationalism, and plans to return to India. In "Turn Again Tiger," Tiger learns that he must not turn his back on his Indian past. These plays demonstrate the choices Indians in the Caribbean must make between tradition and creolization.
