Between the Two, Sunday 7 May, Slung Low's HUB

This Sunday at Slung Low, Leeds:

Sun 7th May 5pm at Slung Low's HUB

Marking the 2017 UK - India Year of Culture, BETWEEN THE TWO is a brand new piece of theatre that explores the sense of place and identity and is written by two of the UK's most exciting new playwrights Rochi Rhampal and Daniel Tyler
      Bharti Patel                     Nadi Kempy-Sayfi              Perry Jaques

Where is home?
Where do we belong when the maps are redrawn?
What happens when we have to leave our homeland for a better future?

On board a ship, we meet a young woman on her voyage between homes. Having grown up in India and witnessing firsthand the historic events leading to Independence, she is now making the journey to Britain where she will spend the rest of her life.

Through flashbacks to her life in India and flash-forwards to her future in the UK, the picture is painted of someone caught between two worlds, races and cultures.

“Having grown up surrounded by aspects from two distinct cultures it was really
intriguing to do some research into the Anglo-Indians and their specific position in British India. Despite their descendants now living all over the world most people know nothing about them. Caught between the British Raj and native Indians, this unique community were both advantaged and disadvantaged, and crucially stuck for an answer when told in both countries to 'go home'. Through exploring my family's own history and the wider Anglo-Indian community it became clear their stories share much with many other people, whether around being mixed race or justliving in an ever-increasingly diverse and multicultural society.”
