About Anita and Me

Meera Syal’s beloved novel Anita and Me has been adapted by Tanika Gupta and 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? Meena’s world is soon 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 and glam rock.

Directed by Roxana Silbert, the production features Coronation Street's Shobna Gulati.
