Elephant by Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti

Focus Birmingham are working in partnership with the Birmingham REP and we are proud to announce that this March the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, in association with Tamasha presents the World Premiere of “Elephant” by Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti. Focus Birmingham will be hosting this production at The Old Joint Stock in Birmingham on Saturday 24th March from 2:00pm.

The award-winning playwright of Behzti (Dishonour) and Khandan (Family) is back again with another great story. Please see synopsis below:

This is family. Real flesh and blood, not out of a catalogue or an Oxo advert.

Vira hasn't seen her sister Deesh for years. Deesh's kids, Amy and Bill, want to know why but nobody's telling them anything.

When Deesh invites her sister to Amy's flashy party, Vira reckons it's time to come home and move on. Time to stop watching the telly, get out of her council flat, stick on a glitzy sari and embrace her nearest and dearest.

But is it possible to forgive and forget? And when a family is built on lies, will it be destroyed by the truth?

Directed by the Royal Court's Associate Director, Lucy Morrison, Elephant sees the highly anticipated return of Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti's work to The REP following the award-winning Behzti (Dishonour) and smash-hit Khandan (Family).
