Ealing’s The Questors Theatre makes history by becoming first non-Indian company to perform at the world-famous Nehru Centre

Ealing’s The Questors Theatre has made history by becoming the first non-Indian company to perform at the world-famous Nehru Centre, in London’s West End.

Last week saw a production of India Gate, which previously made its debut at The Questors earlier this year, take to the stage at The Nehru Centre.

The play, written and directed by Howard Shepherdson, in collaboration with Tajinder Sindra was presented jointly by The Questors Theatre & Punjabi Theatre Academy and tells the story 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).

 

Howard Shepherdson, co-director said: “Writing and directing India Gate with Tanjinder Sindra from Punjabi Theatre Academy has been a privileged journey building trust, understanding and friendship. Blending our two theatrical traditions and putting together a story of our shared history has been exciting.”

Tajinder Sindra, co-director said: “Punjabi Theatre Academy has a long history of commissioning plays so this collaborative project was truly welcome and gave us another important way to share our Punjabi heritage. It has been very rewarding working with The Questors Theatre and Howard Shepherdson.”
