Richard Beck for Broadway Baby,​ reviews The Troth at Army @ The Fringe at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

“Troth is a model of multi-media production from which students of the genre could learn more in sixty minutes than from hours of lectures. For anyone who loves theatre it is a stunning spectacle not to be missed.

Read: The Troth | ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ | by Richard Beck for Broadway Baby.

Akademi’s The Troth – Usne Kaha Tha is a gripping wartime story of love and loss, told through powerful dance theatre.

Inspired by a 1915 short story Usne Kaha Tha by Chandradhar Sharma Guleri, it tells the story of Sardar Lehna Singh’s sacrifice of keeping his secret promise to an unrequited love while mid-conflict in the horror of the trenches of Belgium.

The Troth is directed by Gary Clarke and features a specially-commissioned music score by Shri Sriram. The cast includes Vidya Patel (BBC Young Dancer 2015 finalist).
