About the event

Join our online reading on Zoom in which participants will be invited to read the play or just sit back and listen from the comfort of their own home. The reading will be followed by a thought sharing session and opportunity to ask the writer about their work.

We expect the session to take up to 2.5/3 hours with an interval.

NEW MOON by Anoushka Beazley

The play revolves around a British Hindu family, with two sisters that seem to be polar opposites and how they deal with their ailing mother in the last stages of a horrible disease. Sibling relationships can be complex and mother daughter relationships even more so. Particularly, when everyone has their own secret to hold and ‘the moon is in the tenth house’. 

Although this modern drama has some extremely upsetting subject matters that many families unfortunately experience, it is speckled with humor throughout. Portraying the very real experience of love and grief. It powerfully unpacks very complicated family dynamics, expectations, regrets and resentments between these three women. Highlighting British Hindu culture and motherhood, it asks the important question of what you would do for those you love and protect and what sisterhood truly means. 

Trigger Warnings: Talk of suicide. Depictions of terminal illness and rape.
