The Prose and the Passion takes E.M. Forster, one of the greatest English novelists of all time, as its starting point, and is inspired by his letters, his life, and his novels A Passage to India and Maurice. Multiple timelines converge and diverge, bound together inextricably by the characters that populate Forster's novels, and consumed by the loneliness that is inevitable in bodies that exist outside of the prescribed narratives.

Written by Haresh Sharma and directed by Chong Tze Chien, The Prose and the Passion creates, through lyricism and fantasy, a theatrical world where reality and fiction intersect, where time is fluid, and where human connection is more crucial than ever.
