The Father and the Assassin

The story of the man who murdered Gandhi.

Nathuram Godse: journalist, patriot, murderer.

The Father and the Assassin is a new play that traces Godse’s life over 30 years during India's fight for independence: from devout follower of Mahatma Gandhi, through to his radicalisation and their tragic final encounter.

Director Indhu Rubasingham (The Great Wave) reunites with Anupama Chandrasekhar for this exploration of oppression and extremism.
