Queen Of Hearts – A Celebrating Age Play

Loading Events

Fri 25 and Saturday 26 March
3pm & 7pm

A newly commissioned play from Sampad, as part of MAC’s Celebrating Age programme.

This show is for audiences of all ages, to explore and promote positivity towards ageing and continued creative engagement.

In this light-hearted duologue, a fading Bollywood star struggles to reconcile how she sees herself, versus how the world perceives her in age. Sparks fly as her younger self arrives to question her memories, and to suggest that maybe it’s time to slow down and embrace ageing. Written in English, this production features interludes of Hindi music and dance, and will open and close with newly commissioned dance performances from Aruna Kailey.

Written by Rukhsana Ahmed
Directed by Harmage Singh Kalirai
