Broadway Theatre are bringing to their stage this November a remarkable story of family, identity and belonging; marking the 70th anniversary of the partition of India.

Summer 1947 and 16 million people are on the move between India and the newly-formed Pakistan. Amid the violent political upheaval young Pali’s fingers slip from his father’s hand, and his destiny changes forever.

Taken in by a Muslim family, he is given a new name, a new faith and a new life. But when his real father returns to claim him, Pali must decide who he is: the Hindu boy he was born to be, the Muslim boy he has become, or simply a child of the divide.

Child of the Divide premiered at Polka in 2006 in a co-production with Tamasha, where it was named that year’s No 1 show for children and families by Time Out. Sudha Bhuchar is delighted to be returning to Polka with this thrilling new production marking the launch of Bhuchar Boulevard.

“It really was one of the best plays I’ve ever seen… The play taught me how important family is. It also taught me that everyone matters.”Year 4 pupil, The Priory School, Wimbledon

“A wonderful and mature play… with equal appeal to kids and adults, heart and head”Lyn Gardner, Guardian
