Between the Lines is a contemporary play set in urban India, where well-educated, affluent couples find themselves caught between modernity and tradition. Maya and Shekhar are a lawyer couple, who have been married for 10 years. Shekhar is a high-profile criminal lawyer, while Maya balances work and life, drafting routine contracts for a law firm.
