EXPERIENCE INDIA GATE
Punjabi Theatre Academy and The Questors Theatre
The Questors Theatre in Ealing and The Punjabi Theatre Academy from Southall have worked together to develop the play India Gate which tells the story of independence through the lives of the people closely involved including the Sikh martyr Udham Singh and the architect Sir Edwin Luytens and his wife Emily.
Two pioneering theatre companies are behind this special project. The Questors Theatre is one of the largest amateur theatre companies in Europe performing continuously for over 90 years. It is a recognised training ground for actors and writers and produces up to 18 in house plays a year. The Punjabi Theatre Academy in Southall led by India Gate collaborator Tajinder Sindra, has a reputation for innovative plays and film making, flying the flag for Punjabi theatre and keeping these traditions alive in the UK. This unique partnership crosses cultural boundaries, bringing together two communities to tell the story of our joint heritage.
