Hampstead Theatre presents...
Drawing the Line

< Back to Whats On

Please note: This event is in the past and is available as a reference only.

Hampstead Theatre will be streaming a variety of unique as live recordings as part of their Hampstead Theatre At Home.


Harold Brenton's sweeping epic, Drawing the Line, directed by Howard Davies vividly unfolds the chaotic story of the partition that shaped the modern world.


Drawing the Line will run from 13th to 19th April.


London, 1947. Summoned by the Prime Minister from the Court where he is presiding judge, Cyril Radcliffe is given an unlikely mission. He is to travel to India, a country he has never visited, and, with limited survey information, no expert support and no knowledge of cartography, he is to draw the border which will divide the Indian sub-continent into two new Sovereign Dominions. To make matters even more challenging, he has only six weeks to complete the task.


Wholly unsuited to his role, Radcliffe is unprepared for the dangerous whirlpool of political intrigue and passion into which he is plunged – untold consequences may even result from the illicit liaison between the Leader of the Congress Party and the Viceroy’s wife… As he begins to break under the pressure he comes to realise that he holds in his hands the fate of millions of people.
