Made In (India) Britain

Roo is a deaf Punjabi boy from Birmingham, living in a world that wasn’t made for him.

Through pain and laughter, Roo narrates the impact of ableism and racism throughout his childhood and adult life, leading him to confront one key question: “Where do I belong?”

A coming-of-age story about discovering your community and the journey that follows. Come and be immersed in Roo’s world as he navigates across borders and grapples with his sense of identity.

All performances will be in BSL, Spoken English and Closed Captions.
