Sayan’s commissioned play for Black Country Touring/Arts Alive/Kali Theatre MY BIG FAT COWPAT WEDDING completed a second tour autumn 2016 back by popular demand following its tour in 2014 when it was performed at Soho Elsewhere (Soho Theatre at Brown’s Courtrooms). It’s a celebration of a mixed marriage between a girl from the country and a lad from the city; a light hearted exploration of relationships across the divides of rural/urban, race and gender. Sayan has two new commissions and in 2015 she was commissioned to write a play for children THE TALES OF BIRBAL for The Spark Arts Festival for Children in Leicester which also toured to schools. As a composer/lyricist Sayan is developing the musical of Jamila Gavin's THE SURYA TRILOGY with bookwriter Tersa Howard as well as other musical projects.
Her new play in development THE PREDATOR, has been presented in workshop at Birmingham Rep and she is developing a series for television and a screenplay with ChorMedia.
