Mother Tongues from Farther Lands is a spoken word theatre show features fearless and funny stories from South Asian women.
Full of fascinating, fearless and funny stories from South Asian women – they are the backbone of their culture, but a group whose voices are too often forgotten – the show tours from 11th May 2017 until 3rd June 2017.
It includes entertaining stories that address the gender imbalance experienced in South Asian communities. The devised monologues show the strength, tenacity, bravery and humour at the core of these diverse and ‘kick ass’ women!
