Lions and Tigers is imbued with the vibrancy, colour and movement that make theatre a joy to watch.’ The Upcoming ★★★★

‘This ambitious, driving play… swings from dense history lecture to intimate storytelling, where Gupta’s writing is at its most playful and potent… friends and family spar and banter; this is where Gupta makes her sharpest and funniest observations about politics, gender roles and internalised oppression.’ The Guardian ★★★★

‘Rather than dwelling on partition’s effects, Tanika Gupta’s new play celebrates the spirit of independence that preceded it… she offers a fresh perspective on familiar history — and on well-known figures such as Nehru and Gandhi.’ Evening Standard ★★★★

‘Tanika Gupta’s new play… achieves balance, not spin… constantly reveal[s] both our capacity for cruelty and humanity.’ WhatsOnStage ★★★★
