Background


Written in 2002 for theatre company Shared Experience, Martin Sherman's compelling adaptation of E.M Forster's classic delivers this rich, multi-layered story through an imagistic theatrical language, in which the real and imagined often collide and the mysticism of India sings.

Synopsis


It's 1920s Chandrapore, and Adela Quested has accompanied her future mother-in-law, Mrs Moore, to India before committing to marriage with her son.


Determined to see the 'real India' and shocked by the prejudiced attitudes they encounter at the 'club', the ladies readily accept when friendly Dr Aziz suggests an outing to the Marabar caves … after which fateful day nothing is ever the same again.
