About This Show

Set in Bengal under the British Raj, the play tells of how in the late 19th Century, to meet the world’s insatiable desire for the blue dye to feed the textile industry, vast swathes of the countryside were given over to the cultivation of the indigo plant. Farmers were forced to give over their land to cultivate this crop and atrocities committed by British triggered an extraordinary revolution that changed Bengal forever.
