Partition

Told from the perspective of a modern day couple, 'Partition' explores how the history of the Indian sub-continent continues to tear families apart many years after the separation of British India and the creation of Pakistan in 1947.


As Muslim Saima and Sikh Ranjit prepare for their wedding, hate threatens to destroy their union. Will love or hate prevail? 

With elements of live radio-style foley (sound effects), Partition will appeal to theatre studies students and history students alike. Aimed at higher KS3 and KS4 level (age 14+), the play challenges young people to explore their own heritage and the continuing influence of cultural divisions on British citizens in 2018. 

Originally produced at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2017 and subsequently broadcast on BBC radio, Partition is by local playwright and broadcaster Nick Ahad. It returns to the West Yorkshire Playhouse and is also being performed at the Alhambra Studio and in various schools in autumn 2018.
