News: The Mahrajah & The Kohinoor: touring Sikh heritage play for schools, spring 2010
The Maharajah and the Kohinoor is a theatre-in-education production aimed at Key Stages 2 & 3, including the Victorian Age topic.
It charts the story of Maharajah Duleep Singh, an iconic figure whose life is critical in understanding the relationship between Sikhs and the British.
The play journeys through the life of Duleep Singh, and how at the age of six he became the Maharajah of Lahore, following the death of his father. He was soon after deposed and sent to live in England, where he immediately became a court favourite of Queen Victoria.
The play is an Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail & Zeroseefr co-production with The Drum, Birmingham.
Back by popular demand this family theatre production will tour around schools and venues in the UK from Spring - Autumn 2010. The tour will launch with a performance at The Drum Birmingham on March 11 2010.
