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.

No Dogs, No Indians will uncover forgotten stories from the past and provide new perspectives on the Anglo-Indian encounter. A memorable and timely new piece of theatre; a fresh and emotionally resonant examination of the legacy of empire.
