A Bit Of A Do: Made In (India) Britain

Since leaving home in Birmingham, Rinkoo Barpaga has been determined to find somewhere to settle. Along the way, he’s encountered racism and discrimination, and has begun asking himself: “Where do I belong?”


Made In (India) Britain is an insight into one man’s life, as he tries to work out exactly who he is. Join him as he delves deep into past experiences in order to discover his true self and a place he can finally call home. Performed by Rinkoo in British Sign Language, with a live voiceover provided by an actor. Supported by the Pleasance’s Generate Fund.
