More Information on Partition
It should be the happiest day of Saima and Ranjit’s lives — They’re getting married!
They have their rings, their suits, their speeches, but Saima’s Muslim and Ranjit’s Sikh parents are not by their side. Hate, not love, hangs over this couple’s union. Partition tells the tale of how, 70 years after it was abruptly divided, the history of the Indian subcontinent continues to tear families apart.
Running time: 50 minutes
A unique collaboration between BBC Radio Leeds and West Yorkshire Playhouse brings Partition to the stage — a radio play created live in front of the audience to commemorate the 70th anniversary of India’s partition and the creation of Pakistan.
