Lions and Tigers Reviews

Tanika Gupta's deft and illuminating play... delicately picks its way through the ethical dilemmas... the storytelling is clear, bright, compelling and often witty... [a] sympathetic and wise exploration of how it felt to be caught up in such a painful and critical period of history.' Financial Times 'This ambitious, driving play... swings from dense history lecture to intimate storytelling, where Gupta's writing is at its most playful and potent... friends and family spar and banter; this is where Gupta makes her sharpest and funniest observations about politics, gender roles and internalised oppression.' The Guardian 'Tanika Gupta's new play... achieves balance, not spin... constantly reveal[s] both our capacity for cruelty and humanity.' WhatsOnStage 'A powerfully illuminating look at history.'
