This month, simple8’s critically accliamed adaptation of A Passage to India is coming to Park200 fresh from a fantastic UK tour.

Forster’s masterpiece poses an urgent question: how can we love one another in a world divided by culture and belief?

Following the acclaimed Don’t Sleep There Are Snakes (Park Theatre), the award-winning simple8 transport us to Imperial India, conjuring up the elephants and caves, courthouses and temples by the simplest and boldest means – with original music played live on stage by legendary composer Kuljit Bhamra.

Full of humour and rich humanity, but with vast philosophical and political scope, A Passage to India is one of the great novels of the Twentieth Century. simple8’s thrilling new adaptation re-imagines it for contemporary Britain.

Vincent River

‘Shockingly good… Ridley’s best play… his writing is amongst the very sharpest in British theatre’ ★★★★ Time Out

Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time… and their lives will change forever.

Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash in 2007. Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime – and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ – ever written.
