Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Tender, plausible drama of romance and postcolonial relations in India. A troupe of threadbare traveling Shakespeareans quixotically tours India trying to make enough money to return to England. Wonderfully acted and exquisitely and sensitively directed by Ivory. Based in part on the real-life experiences of the theatrical kendal family.
