How far would you go to resist oppression? What would you choose to remember, and what to forget?

It is 1932 in occupied Bengal. A young revolutionary prepares to storm a whites-only club in Chittagong, an act of defiance that will end in her taking her own life. The sign above the club reads No Dogs, No Indians. Three interlocking stories explore the effects and legacy of the British in India in an extraordinary new play by poet and playwright Siddhartha Bose to mark the 70th anniversary of India’s independence.

Suitable for ages 14+.

Commissioned by Brighton Festival, Southbank Centre, Live Theatre, GemArts, Writers’ Centre Norwich, and Norwich Arts Centre.

Written by Siddhartha Bose
Directed by Russell Bender
