Avanthika Srinivasan and  Heren Patel in Partition

What press is saying…

“The struggle between Indian spirituality and English stubbornness comes to an intimate and exciting revelationRamanujan (enthusiastic, endearing Heren Patel) wins us over by his humility and charm… Alan Coyne’s intense and gripping portrayal of Professor G.H. Hardy launches us on a conflicted emotional journey … The play asks a timely question about immigrants in an imperial setting: What keeps supposedly sophisticated Westerners from appreciating the genius of their colonial immigrants?” – Barry Horwitz, Theatrius
