My Daughter's Trial - a compelling play by my friend Gulshanah

Rehearsals are now underway for My Daughter’s Trial, written by my friend, Gulshanah Choudhuri, an SEN Barrister and the mother of a daughter with Down's Syndrome.

The play, described as compelling and fast moving, features Parveen, an ambitious young Muslim barrister who faces her own trial when she must decide whether to section her mentally ill mother against her family’s wishes.

As Parveen juggles her professional and personal responsibilities, the action switches rapidly from courtroom battle to domestic turmoil, made even more complicated when her opponent in court turns out to be the love of her life.

Witness the actions of both the defendant and Parveen, and judge for yourself who is really on trial

The play is being staged in the atmospheric former Westminster County Court, hidden away in Covent Garden. 

Parveen is played by Goldy Notay.  Goldy is best known for playing the lead in Gurinder Chadha’s It’s a Wonderful Afterlife, Basimah in Sex and the City 2, and opposite Martin Clunes in the ITV series The Town.  She recently starred in Beloved, Produced by Len Loach, which was the closing night film at Cannes. She is a well-known face on TV from regular appearances in Holby City and Doctors
