Sudha Bhuchar’s Child of the Divide, UK Tour 29th Sep – 17th Nov

Child of the Divide

Tamasha’s co-founder Sudha Bhuchar is launching her new company Bhuchar Boulevard with a revival of her compelling play Child of the Divide. This is a remarkable story of family, identity and belonging; marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of India. The world premiere in 2006 was Timeout’s No 1 show for families that year and was critically acclaimed. The new run, from 29th September – 15th October 2017 at the Polka Theatre London, is followed by a national tour which includes launching the Big Imaginations Festival at Z-arts in October 2017.

Synopsis

Summer 1947 and 16 million people are on the move between India and the newly-formed Pakistan. Amid the violent political upheaval young Pali’s fingers slip from his father’s hand, and his destiny changes forever.

Taken in by a Muslim family, he is given a new name, a new faith and a new life. But when his real father returns to claim him, Pali must decide who he is: the Hindu boy he was born to be, the Muslim boy he has become, or simply a child of the divide.

An emotionally-charged story of family, identity and belonging; marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of India.
