SUMMARY

Discover the story behind the story that hit headlines in 2006

'humorous and entertaining... 'My Name is...' makes a powerful case for clear rather than prejudiced thinking' Time Out ****

'absolutely gripping ... a drama of terrific integrity’ The Scotsman ****

'better than any family drama has any right to be' Exeunt *****

'easily one of the best new plays in Scotland this year’ TV Bomb *****

Back for a 2015 tour of Scotland including a run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Sudha Bhuchar's acclaimed verbatim play reveals a love story that began in early 1980s Glasgow, a world away from the frantic ‘tug of love’ well documented in the world's press.

When Gaby disappeared from her Scottish home, it was assumed that her Pakistani father Farhan, had kidnapped her and the spiralling headlines were only momentarily silenced when it emerged that Gaby may have fled of her own accord, choosing to spend her life with her father in Pakistan. To her Scottish mother Suzy’s distress, Gaby declared, “my name is Ghazala” and turned her back on ‘Gaby’ and seemingly, the West.
