The Playwrights Database
Ayndrilla is a British-Bengali writer who completed her MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway University London in 2009. During her MA she was tutored by former Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion and her work was published in an anthology of new writing, Bedford Square 4 (pub. John Murray 2010). Ayndrilla writes short stories and is working on her first novel. Unsung is her first play. She also works as a training and development co-ordinator for Asha, a South Asian charity that provides refuge accommodation for women and children escaping violence. She delivers training on gender awareness, domestic violence and forced marriage and has carried out research for the Home Office on forced marriage in the UK. Ayndrilla has grown up in a household surrounded by Tagores books, songs and artwork and as a child danced in Tagore dance-dramas. She visits Kolkata and Santiniketan frequently and is a particular fan of Tagores short stories. Like Tagore, she enjoys moving between artistic forms, and believes strongly that art must influence social reform. She likes to write in a way that is simple, powerful and brings lost moments back to life.

below is a list of Ayndrilla Singharay's plays - click on a Play Title for more information
Two brothers. Two wives. One family. Ash and Joy are spirited newlyweds; Rana and Megh are struggling to tolerate each other's company. But when outside forces push the family to its limits, there are sacrifices to be made by all. Featuring live Bengali music and song, Unsung is a re-imagining of Shasti, one of Rabindranath Tagore's most haunting short stories. Set in modern day London, its outcome is a reminder how far we will go to protect those we love. . .
