Tamasha theatre company 21st birthday

ASIAN VOICES: SUDHA BHUCHAR and KRISTINE LANDON-SMITH
The writer and director of Tamasha discuss their latest, The House of Bilquis Bibi (Hampstead, and touring), with Suman Bhuchar. The play is an adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba and is part of the company’s 21st birthday celebrations.
Why, when a British Asian company chooses to use Indian accents in a play set in the sub-continent, do some critics think this is incomprehensible?
