"One cannot be friends with the English!"

The advice was harsh but clear, and Aziz ignored it. Now he lies in jail on a charge of sexual assault.

Forster's masterpiece poses a question more urgent today than ever: how can we love one another in a world divided by culture and belief?

Multi award-winning ensemble, simple8, transport us to Imperial India, conjuring up the elephants and caves, courthouses and temples with the simplest and boldest means - including original music played live on stage by legendary composer Kuljit Bhambra.

Full of humour and rich humanity, but with vast philosophical and political scope, A Passage to India is one of the great novels of the Twentieth Century. simple8's thrilling new adaptation reimagines it for contemporary Britain.
