Preti Taneja wins Eastern Eye award
The Arts, Culture and Theatre Awards (ACTAs) winners were revealed at a gala night in London on 21 June. The ACTAs celebrate diverse talent in the arts and entertainment, with categories spanning a wide range of disciplines and showcasing a world of talent.
Dr Taneja said: "Eastern Eye is a hugely important pillar of British life. I was delighted to be shortlisted in such a strong field and to receive this recognition from the judges for We That Are Young."
Set in modern India, We That Are Young is a retelling of King Lear, detailing the brutal power struggles which spring from the resignation of a patriarch from his vast corporation and subsequent handing over of control to his three daughters.
