Dipali Das. Born in Sunamganj. Raised in Burnley. Studied at Dundee University. Stumbled across Dundee Rep Theatre. They provided various platforms for my work, such as community theatre, the women’s group and radio. Gravitated south and didn’t give up the day job as a Radio Frequency Engineer. Continued writing in London, with The Royal Court Young Peoples Theatre and Writers Republic. Became a single parent. Moved to Perth and writing ceased, temporarily. Returned to the North West and settled in Manchester. What a difference thirty miles makes.
