More Information on Anita and Me

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

Anita And Me
 by Meera Syal. Adapted by Tanika Gupta

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
