Austin Shakespeare presents Indian Ink, February 15 – March 3 in Rollins Studio Theatre.

Austin Shakespeare will delight audiences with a professional production of renowned British wit and wordsmith Tom Stoppard in his gorgeous play, Indian Ink. This is the captivating story of a rebellious English poet, who has her portrait painted by a mysterious local artist while traveling in India. Jumping form the 1930s to the 1980s the play interweaves stories of art and desire, as the poet’s younger sister (now an older woman in the 1980s) tries to solve the portrait’s mystery.

Throughout the play, Stoppard wiggles in a comic spoof of 20th century academic literary scholarship. Just as our audiences enjoyed the acclaimed company’s past productions of time travel in Stoppard’s Arcadia, and the glory of language and ideas in The Invention of LoveIndian Ink will amuse and mesmerize with its exotic setting, richly portrayed characters and the beautiful words of one of the greatest living playwrights. Every performance features a brief “Talk Back” for audiences with actors and director Ann Ciccolella on the theater of ideas, romance and characters (some performances feature guest commentators after the show).
