Anita and Me
Meera Syal’s much-loved novel burst onto the stage for the very first time in 2015, then continued touring the UK in 2016 and 2017.
Meena is a young girl growing up in the only Punjabi family in a 1970s Midlands mining village. She 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.
