Strong Back Tales


Following our successful storytelling event Rude Gyals last year in south London, Strong Back Productions came to east London with Strong Back Tales, celebrating the untold stories of Bengali women.

Kickboxing glory, childhood memories, a mother’s loss, scandalous musicians and celebratory food.

Intriguing, heartfelt and uplifting.  An evening of true-life stories from Bengali women read by Leesa Gazi, Komal Amin and Sukhraj Dhillon.
