Anita & Me

Anita & Me - Tuesday 14 – Saturday 18 March 2017​

The Touring Consortium Theatre Company presents a  Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company production

Anita And Me 
By Meera Syal. Adapted by Tanika Gupta

Meera Syal’s much-loved novel bursts on to the stage for the very first time.

This poignant coming-of-age tale follows Meena, a young girl growing up in the only Punjabi family in a 1970s Black Country mining village. Meena spends her days happily getting into scrapes with the other local children until one day the impossibly cool Anita enters her life. Suddenly Meena knows exactly who she wants to be but is Anita all that she seems? Soon Meena’s world is turned upside down as she is caught between two very different cultures.

Anita And Me paints a comic, poignant, compassionate and colourful portrait of village life in the era of flares, power cuts, glam rock, decimalisation and Ted Heath. It has been adapted for the stage by the multi-award-winning Tanika Gupta.

“I am so thrilled that Anita And Me is being developed and premiered at The REP” – Meera Syal

Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinner Ladies) will star as ‘Daljit’. Joining Shobna on stage will be Laura Aramayo as ‘Anita’, Sam Cole as ‘Sam Lowbridge’, Therese Collins as ‘Mrs Worrall’, Rina Fatania as ‘Namina’, and Rebekah Hinds as ‘Mrs Ormerod / Deidre’.
