The Father and the Assassin Tickets London Theatre

The Father and the Assassin Tickets

A new play by Anupama Chandrasekhar

Tickets from £20


The story of the man who murdered Gandhi.
Nathuram Godse: journalist, patriot, murderer.

The Father and the Assassin is a gripping new play that traces Godse’s life over 30 years during India's fight for independence: from devout follower of Mahatma Gandhi, through to his radicalisation and their tragic final encounter.

Director Indhu Rubasingham (The Great Wave) reunites with Anupama Chandrasekhar, one of India’s most exciting playwrights, for this essential exploration of oppression and extremism.
