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 by The Questors Theatre 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, exploring an important chapter of Anglo-Indian history.
 
Performed in English language, with some Punjabi dialogue for native speakers.
 
Incredibly insightful and enjoyable perspective on British and Indian History in the period that led up to the independence.” – Seema Malhotra MP
