Meera Syal and Tanika Gupta - Queens of Drama in conversation..

Great friends for many years, these two amazing women are coming to Archway to talk to us about their work. Meera Syal is beloved as the comedian and actress who co-penned and acted in the TV favourites the Kumars at No. 42 and Goodness Gracious Me; she has published three wonderful novels, and regularly writes and performs her scripts most recently for the NHS is 70 celebrations at The Old Vic and at The Edinburgh Festival. Tanika Gupta has written over 20 stage plays that have been produced in major theatres across the Uk; most recently she won the James Tait Black Prize for her glorious and deeply personal play Lions and Tigers about her great-uncle Dinesh Gupta who was a freedom fighter in India. She is also a prolific writer for radio and screen and adapted Meera Syal's novel Anita and Me for the stage. This is a very special and rare chance to hear from and meet these exceptional writers.
