Intelligent…topical…moving”

“Brings home the piece’s keenly felt message today of different cultures colliding…an atmospheric pleasure”
“When matches flare and flicker in the darkness, with bamboo sticks held at threatening, alarming angles to evoke the claustrophobia of the caves, the cast chanting in ominous unison, the effect is potent”
The Telegraph

★★★★
“A brilliantly staged piece of theatre”
“Perhaps the true strength of A Passage to India lies in the work of its ensemble, with just drapes, bamboo canes and boxes, we travel through India via train, a splendid elephant and into the deep caves, with the cast creating these before us through brilliant movement work”

“The time is right for A Passage to India…A rare chance for a modern audience to feel that our muddled world is in at least one respect, a better place… a life affirming whoosh”
“A mixed cast generates both the eclectic splendour of India and the tweedy passive-aggressive fascism of the British Raj: conjuring trains, elephants and magical caves with barely more than boxes, sticks and drapes as props”
