Made In India wins Best Production at ACTA Awards

Posted on 25 May 2017

Surrogacy play Made in India picked up an Eastern Eye ACTA award for Best Production last weekend at a ceremony held at London’s Southbank Centre. The prestigious award was collected by Director Katie Posner and Writer Satinder Chohan, who are pictured above with the Southbank’s Artistic Director Jude Kelly.

Made in India premiered on the Belgrade’s B2 stage in January this year before heading off on a UK tour, earning huge critical acclaim. This thrilling play told the story of three women meeting for the first time in a surrogacy clinic in Gujarat.

Londoner Eva is in motherhood’s last chance saloon. For village girl Aditi, dairy worker and single mother, surrogacy is a lifeline out of poverty. For clinic owner and businesswoman Dr Gupta, it’s all just another transaction. But set on the fault lines of profound global forces, can it possibly remain that simple?

Made in India was produced by the Belgrade and Tamasha, in association with Pilot Theatre and featured an all-female cast including Ulrika Krishnamurti, Gina Isaac and Syreeta Kumar.

Also winning the award for Best Emerging Artist, was actress Ambreen Razia, who audiences may also have seen performing on the B2 stage earlier this year in her one woman show, The Diary of a Hounslow Girl.
