“It’s thrilling to encounter a playwright who first of all takes the time thoroughly to research an unseen corner of British culture, and then enters so passionately and creatively into the challenges of bringing that story to the stage. Shraddha displays some breath-taking writing and a vivid theatrical imagination; it’s the kind of play that makes you hungry to know what the writer will produce next.” - Edward Kemp, Meyer-Whitworth Award judge
