India Gate

The Questors Theatre, Mattock Lane, Ealing, W5 5BQ

30th Apr 2022 - 7th May 2022

UNTIL Saturday 7th May

A world première of a powerful new play, inspired by India's fight for freedom, marking 75 years of independence.

Developed by The Questors Theatre in collaboration with Punjabi Theatre Academy, these two companies have brought their unique cultural identities to this multi-faceted production, exploring an important chapter of Anglo-Indian history.

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 journey 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.

Performed in English, with some Punjabi dialogue for native speakers.

"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 (on the workshop production)
