Hindu Times - Edinburgh International Festival

This rehearsed reading is presented by Dundee Rep Theatre, Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Pitlochry Festival Theatre in association with Stellar Quines Theatre Company.

Hindu gods Vishnu and Brahma incarnate as two local wide boys in Dundee. They’re here to save an Indian woman called Lakhi, AKA Lakshmi. She’s in deep trouble. She’s forgotten that she’s a goddess.

Can the gods help her? Can they save the Earth? And find the elixir of life?

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Pitlochry Festival Theatre presented the premier of the audio production of Hindu Times on 28 May 2021 as part of Sound Stage. Scottish playwright Jaimini Jethwa recently worked with Dundee Rep Theatre, National Theatre Scotland and Stellar Quines on her acclaimed play Last Queen Of Scotland.

This semi-staged reading of Hindu Times, as part of Edinburgh International Festival, is the next step in the play’s journey as the story is reimagined for live audiences in 2022.
