The Questors & Punjabi Theatre Academy

India Gate

30 Apr - 07 May 22 | in the Judi Dench Playhouse

India Gate

The Questors & Punjabi Theatre Academy

India Gate

by Howard Shepherdson, in collaboration with Tajinder Sindra

Inspired by India’s fight for freedom, marking 75 years of independence

This gripping new play follows the journey of Edwin and Emily Lutyens and their connection with the Indian community in London and Delhi during the construction of the All India War Memorial (India Gate). Their story is interwoven with that of the Sikh Martyr Udham Singh, whose extraordinary fight for India's independence from the British Raj began in 1919 in Amritsar.

"This thought-provoking production is beautifully staged and acted. It's one of those plays that leaves you wondering and googling long after it’s finished as the events stay with you. Highly recommend." - Rupa Huq MP

A world première of a passionate and intriguing new play developed in collaboration with the Punjabi Theatre Academy, theatre-makers of Indian heritage who have brought their cultural understanding to this important and multi-faceted true-life story.

Performed in English language, with some Punjabi dialogue for native speakers, for which there will be projected surtitles in English. 

"Each partner has brought its own expertise and the play has a ringing authenticity, indeed much of the dialogue is in Punjabi." - Mark Aspen Reviews

"Incredibly insightful and enjoyable perspective on British and Indian History in the period that led up to the independence." - Seema Malhotra MP

India Gate will begin its tour at The Questors Theatre, before going to theatres across the UK and to India. Find out more about this exciting production via their website.
