A Royal & Derngate, Northampton and simple8 Theatre Company co-production



"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.

A company possessing the skills, dedication and intelligence to create wonder"

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our Front of House entrance on King Street into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our temporary Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
