Festival of Independence
About the festival
Shakespeare’s Globe presents the Festival of Independence, honouring those who have fought for independence, and those who continue to do so across the world today.
Curated by award-winning playwright Tanika Gupta MBE, the festival aims to shine a light on struggles for personal, political and artistic freedom, and includes theatre, music, poetry and dance.
It features a world premiere of Gupta’s new play Lions and Tigers, directed by Pooja Ghai, in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
The festival will also feature a one-off gig in the Globe Theatre by Mobo award-winning Nitin Sawhney, a new production of Vijay Tendulkar’s revolutionary play A Friend’s Story directed by Akash Khurana, and an evening of words and music in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse with Susheela Raman, William Dalrymple, Sam Mills and Pirashanna Theverajah.
