One thought on “In the Native State”

  1. Discusses colonialism in India, art, poetry, secrets, and the connections people make across time through these things. I'm excited to read Indian Ink, Stoppard's updated version of this radio play, next!

  2. Pretty good play. I'm a little bit prejudiced against anything written after Shaw, play-wise, so I didn't enjoy it all that much. Basically, give me Shakespeare every time. In any case, you can tell that Stoppard is brilliant and knows the canon like the back of his hand, but the two plays of his I've come in contact with seemed more witty than insightful. Meh.
