Wipers wins Asian Media Award for Best Stage Production

Posted on 28 October 2016

Director Suba Das was at the Asian Media Awards last night picking up this award for WIPERS in the Best Stage Production category!

The production received much acclaim from audiences and critics when it opened at the Belgrade in May earlier this year.

Based on the real life story of Khudadad Khan, WIPERS honoured the contribution of the million South Asian soldiers who fought during the First World War.

October 1914, Ypres, Belgium. The British forces, bolstered by huge numbers of volunteer soldiers from across the Empire have suffered huge casualties in one of the first bloody battles of The Great War.

As a sole survivor on the battlefield holds off the advancing enemy troops, a group of South Asian and British soldiers seek refuge in an abandoned barn. Over the course of a single night, this group of men must confront their fears and find a way to come together if they are to survive.

We are delighted to have won this award and would like to thank Suba Das and our co-producers at Curve Leicester and Watford Palace!
