Extract from 'Invisible' - work in progress performed at V&A

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.
