A Battle for the Soul: Hidden Voices from India’s Past

A Battle for the Soul presents narrative snapshots of the lives of young Indian men and women, drawn from recently uncovered autobiography and written testimony.

Set against the turbulent times of colonial rule in the sub-continent, stories of personal dilemmas of faith, family conflict and uncertain futures emerge in this rehearsed reading with projections.

Bringing together theatre artist Annie George and recent research at the University of Edinburgh, A Battle for the Soul breathes life into these previously hidden voices.

The reading will be followed by refreshments and a discussion, led by Dr Hephzibar Irael, exploring some of the issues raised in the presentation.
