Evening Conversations

Midlands Arts Centre, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH

A brand new work-in-progress including a post-show discussion with experienced playwright and actress Sudha Bhuchar.

A middle-aged, middle-class, multicultural mum with millennial sons, this light hearted work-in-progress is a meditation on Sudha Bhuchar’s ‘squeezed middle’ life in Wimbledon, as she navigates her sense of ‘home’, friendships, family and returning to India as a Non-Resident Indian. Told through fragments & monologues, this piece is inspired by evening conversations over Aperol spritzers!

Writer/performer: Sudha Bhuchar.
Director: Kristine Landon-Smith.Running time: 60mins plus 30min discussion.Suitable for ages 10+
