BITCHED By Sharon Raizada

A biting witty take on parenting, sex and power

New mum, loving wife and successful hair stylist Ali is stuck in a shabby local salon trying to make ends meet. Husband Rob is so intent on making it as an artist, he barely notices. Their luck seem to change when glamorous Shoreditch gallery owners Suzanne and Nirjay launch Rob’s career. But what are they really after?


30 October—11 November

Lust | Laughter | Strength | Strife

Performed readings of seven provocative, funny and courageous new plays. It’s the culmination of our nine month Writer Development Programme -inspiring and training South Asian women to write for performance.

Featuring Ibiza parties, sweatshops, speaking animals, blind love and bird droppings, this year’s Talkback has something for everyone!

Come and catch some of the freshest and most original voices in new theatre writing.


All at Tristan Bates Theatre, London
