A captivating new play about love, family and ever-shifting identities

My Name is… tells the story behind a story that fleetingly hit headlines in 2006 and continues to resonate throughout the UK and beyond.

When Gaby disappears from her Scottish home, it is assumed that her Pakistani father Farhan, has kidnapped her and the spiralling headlines are only momentarily silenced when it emerges that Gaby may have fled of her own accord, choosing to spend her life with her father in Pakistan. To her Scottish mother Suzy’s distress, Gaby declares, “my name is Ghazala” and turns her back ‘Gaby’ and seemingly, the West.

This moving verbatim play reveals a cross-cultural love story that began in late 70s Glasgow, a world away from the frantic ‘tug of love’ well documented in the world's press.

Tamasha is an award-winning theatre company, which has driven the crossover of British Asian work into the mainstream. Successes like East is East, The Trouble with Asian Men and Snookered have won acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
