The cast is headed by Tony winner Rosemary Harris as Eleanor Swan with Firdous Bamji (Nikrad Das), Bill Buell (Englishman), Nick Choksi (Dilip), Romola Garai (Flora Crewe), Neal Huff (Eldon Pike), Caroline Lagerfelt (Englishwoman), Omar Maskati (Nazrul), Tim McGeever (Resident), Brenda Meaney (Nell), Philip Mills (Eric), Ajay Naidu (Coomaraswami) Bhavesh Patel (Anish Das), Lee Aaron Rosen (David Durance) and Rajeev Varma (Rajah/Politician).

"Set on two different continents and in two different eras," Indian Ink, press notes state, "follows free-spirited English poet Flora Crewe (Romola Garai) on her travels through India in the 1930s, where her intricate relationship with an Indian artist unfurls against the backdrop of a country seeking its independence. Fifty years later, in 1980s England, her younger sister Eleanor (Rosemary Harris) tries to preserve the legacy of Flora's controversial career. Little by little, Flora’s mysterious past is revealed, as is the surprising story of two people whose connection lives on through art. An evocative portrait of love and loss, Indian Ink movingly explores how the creative spirit can bring us together in the most unexpected ways."

The creative team also features Neil Patel (sets), Robert Wierzel (lighting), Candice Donnelly (costumes) and Dan Moses Schreier (sound).

Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 PM with 2 PM matinees Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
