Octagon Theatre Bolton and Linbury Prize for Stage Design

AN ADVENTURE by Vinay Patel

28th January - 20 February 2021


Ahmedabad, India, 1953. Headstrong teenager Jyoti would rather watch her beloved Bollywood films than get married, but wide-eyed suitor Rasik promises her a lifetime of excitement.

An Adventure follows the journey of this husband and wife, spanning seven decades and three continents, as they navigate political tensions in 1950s Kenya and the turbulance of first-generation life in Britain in the 1960s and beyond.

Witty, charming and moving, this is a global story of upheaval, progress and revolution, seen through real people’s everyday lives. The captivating story is by award-winning writer Vinay Patel, whose writing credits include Doctor Who and Murdered By My Father (BBC).

This production will be designed by TK Hay, winner of the 2019 Linbury Prize for stage design.
