REVIEW: A Passage to India at the Park Theatre

Based on the renowned E.M. Forster novel, this period drama centers on the dynamics between British colonials and native locals in India during the 1920s. 

‘A passage to India’ has been beautifully adapted for the stage by Simon Dormandy, and flawlessly directed by Dormandy & Sebastian Armesto. Helped seamlessly along by Original Music by Kuljit Bhamra.

As a lover of Forsters novel I was hugely impressed by this stage production. I felt it really captured the essence of Forster’s language and his descriptive narrative was perfectly coherent through the Beautiful amalgamation of adaption, direction, performance and music. I was transported to a hot Indian summer and was swept along the warm breeze by a really sensational performance from Asif Khan as Dr Aziz. He was funny, endearing and perfectly cast.

Definitely get down to this fantastic venue and enjoy an evening of laughter, drama and mystery.
