Hindu Times
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Writer Jaimini Jethwa and Director Caitlin Skinner bring to life a story of love and restoration, as two Hindu deities suddenly find themselves in the city of Dundee.

Hindu gods Vishnu and Brahma incarnate as two local wide boys in Dundee. Theyre here to save an Indian woman called Lakhi, AKA Lakshmi. Shes in deep trouble. Shes forgotten that shes a goddess.

Can the gods help her? Can they save the Earth? And find the elixir of life?

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Pitlochry Festival Theatre presented the premiere of the audio production of Hindu Times on 28 May 2021 as part of Sound Stage. Scottish playwright Jaimini Jethwa recently worked with Dundee Rep Theatre, National Theatre Scotland and Stellar Quines on her acclaimed play Last Queen Of Scotland.

This semi-staged reading of Hindu Times, as part of Edinburgh International Festival, is the next step in the plays journey as the story is reimagined for live audiences in 2022.

Made possible through the PLACE programme

This rehearsed reading is presented by Dundee Rep Theatre, Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Pitlochry Festival Theatre in association with Stellar Quines Theatre Company.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
