Sudha Bhuchar - photo by Robert Day
My Name Is... is a play by Sudha Bhuchar, currently on a short tour with the Tamasha Theatre Group. It is based on the true story of a twelve year old Scottish/Pakistani girl who disappeared from her home on the Isle of Lewis. Bhuchar has resisted the temptation to fictionalise the story (apart from altering the names) and instead stays with the authentic voices of the three family members - father, mother and daughter - as they tell their story from different sides of the world. And those voices have extraordinary directness. But this is not strictly 'verbatim' writing either. Bhuchar has shaped the script, interweaving the stories and letting the voices cut across each other, so that we hear two versions of the parents' first meeting, two versions of family's hajj to Mecca. At times the actors cross the invisible divide to take part in a remembered scene or speak words attributed to them by one another. At times, too, they break through a kind of 'third wall,' to address, not the audience in the theatre, but the original audience of Bhuchar and her tape recorder. Afterwards, playwright and actors took part in a New Writing Platform discussion with the audience, looking the process of creating My Name Is... and the challenges of verbatim theatre This was first in a new series of events presented by the MA Dramatic Writing course run by University of the Arts London, to explore, discuss and share new ideas. Bhuchar began by explaining how she was drawn to the story by an article in the Guardian, the first that attempted to reach beyond stereotypes and accusations, and how she approached the family and asked to interview them. She flew to Pakistan and spent several days with father and daughter. The daughter then persuaded the mother to see her, and she spent several more days on Lewis with her. The result was 120 pages of interview transcripts which took eight years to shape into this play. "The technique came in layers," Bhuchar explained. "I'd never worked like this in my life! To begin with I thought that I would fictionalise the story, but nothing I wrote had the power of the original words. In the end the promise I made was that, however I shaped it, I must not make up any words" Asked about her interview technique, Bhuchar spoke of not having her own agenda, about having empathy, about being interested in simply 'overhearing.' One of the ways she got the mother to open up was to go back to the very beginning of the story, to when the two of them met, when they had been happy together. "Usually people don't ask me that," she was told. And you can read my interview with Sudha Bhuchar about her time as Artistic Director of Tamasha here. Sudha Bhuchar - photo by Robert Workman But I became involved because I was hungry to engage like-minded people," Bhuchar begins. Bhuchar has worked as actor, playwright and artistic director. Does her heart lay with one of those roles, or does she see them as interconnected? Landon-Smith went back to Australia in 2013, and now Bhuchar herself is looking to move on too. And what lies in the future for Sudha Bhuchar? And you can read about the development of Sudha Bhuchar's play My Name Is...here.
