Pink Sari Revolution: A Tale of Women and Power in The Badlands of India recounts the real-life story of India’s ‘Pink Sari Gang’, an activist sisterhood and mass movement of over 20,000 pink-sari-wearing women across the northern part of India who fight against the oppression of women. The story centres on leader Sampat Pal and their 2010 campaign to free falsely imprisoned teenager Sheelu Nishad after she was raped by a prominent local politician.

This new award follows a grant last year which enabled research and development of the story to be carried out in northern India.

Pink Sari Revolution will premiere at Curve in 2017, be performed in parts of India and then embark on a UK tour.
