About 2020: Collection 3

Zoom calls. Trump’s America. Online dating. Black Lives Matter. 2020 was the year none of us will forget. Hear intimate stories of love, politics, tragedy, family and even football as the international becomes local in these specially commissioned new work from 12 writers in the UK and around the world. 2020 is performed in three collections across three weeks, each presenting four stories. Najma Nama by Abhishek Majumdar Exploring the impact of the pandemic on the sprawling slums of India we hear the stories, hopes and dreams of two characters; Najma, a sex worker in the city and her sister Salma who is a nurse at a village hospital as the government attempts to repatriate city workers to their villages. Boxed by Sumerah Srivastav Investigating the challenges faced by a young Asian woman made redundant from her job in the cultural sector, Boxed confronts the overt racism that can no longer be swept under the carpet and the prejudice encountered within our society. Good Trouble by Sonali Bhattacharyya Mina, a British Asian woman living in Leicester, debates whether to call out the lack of PPE equipment and care taken by those in charge at her daughter’s workplace. Torn between speaking truth to power and fear of reprisal, Good Trouble examines the dilemma faced by so many frontline workers. Quiet by Shreya Sen-Handley A 40-year-old woman in Nottingham traverses the novelty, confusion and weariness felt by many caring for young children during the pandemic. As she deals with her little boy’s autism, email exchanges with her parents in India reveal surprising new truths. Age Recommendation: 16+
