We could not be more excited to announce that Santi & Naz is back!

We are so proud to be winner of the Charlie Hartill Fund 2023, which allows us to take a newly developed version of the show to Edinburgh Fringe in 2023. 

Santi & Naz are best friends living in a small village in India. When Naz is betrothed to an older man, the threat of their separation looms large on the horizon. As the political situation around the country’s partition worsens, they decide to take drastic action.


SANTI & NAZ explores childhood friendship, identity and loyalty, set against the backdrop of a country soon to be changed forever.


A new play by Guleraana Mir and afshan d’souza-lodhi, from award-winning company, The Thelmas, makers of LADYKILLER & COCONUT.
