IN THE NATIVE STATE
BY TOM STOPPARD
The play takes place in two timelines. In 1930, Flora Crewe, a young poet with a somewhat scandalous reputation, travels to India for her health, to deliver a series of lectures on British literary society.She meets an Indian painter, Nirad Das, and agrees to sit for a portrait. Meanwhile in contemporary England another young Indian painter, Anish, goes to visit Mrs Eleanor Swan, the sister of Flora Crewe. Eleanor spent much of her life in India before independence, and clearly is deeply attached to it. She and Anish clash over interpretation of Indian history and untangle the relationship of Flora and Nirad.
