A powerful dramatization of E.M. Forster's classic. Recently arrived from England, Adela Quested longs to see the "real India" for herself before deciding to marry Chandrapore's local magistrate. She agrees to go to the Marabar caves with Aziz, a young Indian doctor—unaware of the passions and dark fears their visit will unearth. Martin Sherman's adaptation dramatically captures the explosive tensions that exist when two cultures collide.
"…a work of great literature that has been adapted with fierce intelligence; a thrilling devotion to movement, music and design; and a unique feel for place and character." —Chicago Sun-Times. "…Martin Sherman has written a smart, sensitive, even wise stage version of the E.M. Forster novel about a clash of cultures in British India." —Chicago Reader. "Martin Sherman's stage adaptation is a tight, nuanced work that conveys the gripping essence of Forster's look into the world of British colonialism in India…a bold masterwork that underscores Forster's contempt for imperialism, political and sexual repression…It is pure joy to witness an epic novel come alive on stage." —ChicagoCritic.com.
