San Jose Repertory Theatre
101 Paseo de San Antonio San Jose
Set in a contemporary call center, the play takes place in Chennai, India. The plot follows the various call center workers, including fortysomething Avinash and young "Supercollector" Ross, as they are renamed and re-branded to chase their "marks," Americans who have failed to pay their credit card bills. In a windowless office, these energetic workers known as the "Illinois team" make calls late into the night utilizing American accents and Americanized names. In order to work toward the alluring American Dream, they target Chicago residents who are crippled in debt from the same lifestyle the workers desire. Roshan, renamed as Ross, creates a central conflict in the play when the "supercollector" gets carried away with fantasies regarding one of his marks in Springfield.
