The Maharajah & the Kohinoor 2010 Tour

11/3/2010 to 30/6/2010

Anglo Sikh Heritage Trail & Zeroseefr  in co-production with The Drum

Back by popular demand  this family theatre production will tour around schools and venues in the UK from Spring - Autumn 2010. 

The ‘Maharajah and the Kohinoor' is an exciting theatre-in-education production aimed at Key Stages 2 & 3. Charting one of the most illustrious episodes in British history the play is a touching tale of love and loyalty. It follows the story of Duleep Singh, Maharajah of Lahore and King of the Sikh Empire, who was deposed at the age of eleven and sent to England. Separated from his mother he arrived on the shores of England and was immediately adopted by Queen Victoria. Encouraged by Her Majesty, Duleep Singh established solid relationships with the Royal family over the years. However, injustices and insincere intentions eventually drove him into the throws of exploitative meddlers who offered allegiance but left him isolated. He died penniless and alone in a desolate hotel in Paris in 1883.
