Summary

Flora Crewe, a young poet travelling in India in 1930, has her portrait painted by a local artist. More than fifty years later, the artist's son visits Flor'as sister in London while her would-be biographer is following a cold trail in India. The alternation of place and period in Tom Stoppard's new play (based on his radio playIn The Native State) makes for a rich and moving exploration of intimate lives set against one of the great shafts of history, the emergence of the Indian subcontinent from the grip of Europe.

Table of Contents

"Simply let yourself go to be swirled up in Tom Stoppard's Indian Ink, a layered comedy about an English poet's artistic-erotic visit to India in 1930 and the attempt of others to come to terms with its legacy 55 years later."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
