The Father and the Assassin tells the story of the man who murdered Gandhi. First shown by the National Theatre in 2022, the play charts the life of Nathuram Godse, journalist, nationalist and the man who murdered Gandhi, over a 30 year period.
The gripping play traces Godse’s life over thirty years during India’s fight for independence: from a devout follower of Gandhi, through to his radicalisation and their tragic final encounter in Delhi in 1948.
Starred Paul Bazely as Gandhi and Shubham Saraf as Godse. Dinita Gohil played Vimala.
