Tania will be appearing as Manpreet Hesbani on Eastenders BBC One, bringing some life changing news to the Fowlers and Kazemis.....
No surprise to find that this provocative and clever novel by Kamila Shamsie, which reimagines Sophocles 'Antigone' in a contemporary London setting, and challengingly explores the clash between the personal and political, is on the Man Booker Longlist.
You can listen to an extract from the audiobook version recorded by Tania here.
It was an eye opener to record Angela Saini's revelatory book - 'Inferior' in which she re-examines and challenges the 'science' behind preconceptions on the supposed differences between the sexes.
Tania was delighted to narrate this documentary that charts the adventures of five friends travelling from the North to the South of India in two rickshaws to raise money and awareness for the Indian based charity Educate Girls.

Tania was thrilled to perform part of 'Invisible' to an invited audience from the BAME in publishing network, in the incredibly pertinent and atmospheric South Asian Hall of the V&A museum in London. Surrounded by objects that had been 'acquired' from the Raj, and the very throne of Maharajah Ranjit Singh, the play, which weaves together Tania's own citizenship story with that of Sophia Duleep Singh, Ranjit's granddaughter, acquired a ghostly resonance.
Inspired by the story of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh, whose contribution to the suffragette movement remains largely unrecognized, this is my exploration, from my perspective as a new British citizen and a woman of Asian origin, of what it means to belong.Read More
