Two worlds collide in the off-Broadway premiere of Indian Ink, the passionate and fascinating drama by four-time Tony Award® winner Tom Stoppard (The Coast of UtopiaThe Real Thing). Set on two different continents and in two different eras, Indian Ink follows free-spirited English poet Flora Crewe on her travels through India in the 1930s, where her intricate relationship with an Indian artist unfurls against the backdrop of a country seeking its independence. Fifty years later, in 1980s England, her younger sister Eleanor (Tony and Golden Globe Award® winner Rosemary Harris) tries to preserve the legacy of Flora's controversial career. Little by little, Flora’s mysterious past is revealed, as is the surprising story of two people whose connection lives on through art.

An evocative portrait of love and loss, Indian Ink movingly explores how the creative spirit can bring us together in the most unexpected ways. Carey Perloff (Artistic Director, American Conservatory Theater) directs. 

This production features nudity and is therefore recommended for audiences over 16 years of age.
