Production photos have come in for the RSC’s new staging of The Empress by Tanika Gupta, which is now playing at the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon and coming soon to the Lyric Hammersmith in London.

Directed by Pooja Ghai, the play spans a period of 13 years over the ‘Golden Era’ of the Victorian Empire, taking audiences from the rugged gangways of Tilbury docks to the grandeur of Queen Victoria’s Palace, whilst unveiling the long and embedded culture of British Asian history which continues to shape our society today.

The Empress is now playing at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon until 15 September, and then again from 1 to 18 November 2023; and at the Lyric Hammersmith in London from 4 to 28 October 2023.

The cast includes Raj Bajaj as Abdul Karim, Miriam Grace Edwards as Charlotte / Georgina, Francesca Faridany as Lady Sarah, Alexandra Gilbreath as Queen Victoria, Aaron Gill as Hari, Anyebe Godwin as Serang / Lascar, Oliver Hembrough as Sir John Oakham / William / Painter.
