We're excited to announce Anita and Me as a featured production in Spring 2017. Read more to find out what's coming up!

Theatre Cloud brings you our next featured production Anita and Me.

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... and we're very excited to be featuring it!

Shobna Gulati (Coronation Street, Dinner Ladies) will star as ‘Daljit’ in the new tour of Anita and Me opening at the Wolverhampton Grand on 14 February 2017, and touring the UK until April. Adapted by multi award-winning Tanika Gupta from the book by Meera Syal, directed by Roxana Silbert and designed by Bob Bailey, with original music by the Ringham Brothers, Anita and Me will play Wolverhampton, Cheltenham, Blackpool, Nottingham, Bradford and Edinburgh.

“I’m delighted that Anita and Me is touring the UK.    It is amazing to think of so many people engaging in this story - particularly young people, who like me as a child, may be wondering how they fit in!”
Meera Syal

We'll be covering the show along the way, beginning with rehearsals in January when we'll be getting a first look at what to expect from the show with pictures and video capturing the creative process. Whether you want to know more about Roxanne's directing decisions or are interested in how Tanika approached adapting Meera Syal's work, we've got it covered!

Once the tour begins, we'll be following the show across the UK with content from our young reporters, show features,  updates from the cast, as well as a look at the people behind the scenes and at the theatres we visit. 

We'll be generating learning resources for those who want to explore the production process further and next month will be launching new creative projects for you to get involved in.

 


Anita and Me opens at Wolverhampton Grand theatre, where it plays from 14 to 18 February 2017. It then tours to Cheltenham, Blackpool, Nottingham, Bradford and Edinburgh.
