A UNIQUE COLLABORATION BETWEEN MANCHESTER MUSEUM, UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER, GREATER MANCHESTER BAME NETWORK, AHMED IQBAL ULLAH RACE RELATIONS RESOURCE CENTRE AND THE ROYAL EXCHANGE THEATRE TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY OF PARTITION.

Seven decades on, the memories of Partition are still strong. Hear the voices of silent experiences, stories and hidden histories of Manchester’s South Asian communities in 10 monologues from some of the North's most exciting playwrights.

Ten South Asian writers and spoken word artists have been commissioned by the Royal Exchange Theatre to create new monologues which will reveal the untold stories of the significance of Partition and the impact still felt today. These monologues are inspired by the material that has emerged from the Memories of Partition Oral History project at Manchester Museum.
