The off-Broadway premiere of Tom Stoppard’s Indian Ink begins performances at the Laura Pels Theatre on September 4. The Roundabout production stars Tony and Emmy winner Rosemary Harris and U.K. stage and screen fave Romola Garai.
Set on two different continents and in two different eras, Indian Ink follows free-spirited English poet Flora Crewe on her travels through India in the 1930s, where her intricate relationship with an Indian artist unfurls against the backdrop of a country seeking its independence. Fifty years later, in 1980s England, her younger sister Eleanor tries to preserve the legacy of Flora's controversial career.
In addition to Harris and Garai, the cast features Firdous Bamji, Bill Buell, Nick Choksi, Neal Huff, Caroline Lagerfelt, Omar Maskati, Tim McGeever, Brenda Meaney, Philip Mills, Ajay Naidu, Bhavesh Patel, Lee Aaron Rosen and Rajeev Varma.
Indian Ink, directed by Carey Perloff, will celebrate its opening night on September 30. The play is scheduled to run through November 30.
