WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Midnight's Children is a stage presentation of Salman Rushdie's Booker Prize-winning novel. Originally published as a novel in 1981, this extraordinary allegory of modern India focused on the inextricably linked fates of two children born on the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947 - the date of India's independence from Britain. This multi-layered work places its characters against the backdrop of significant historical events on the Indian subcontinent during India's first 30 years of independence. Tim Supple directs.
