Behind The Beautiful ForeversMeera Syal stars in Behind the Beautiful Forevers, David Hare's adaptation of Katherine Boo's book - "a small classic of contemporary writing" at the National Theatre. The 2012 book was penned after the author spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents, and now comes to the National directed by the theatre's next artistic director, Rufus Norris. Beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum where the story is set, following the lives, hopes and conflicts of three families. Meera Syal last appeared at the National Theatre in 'Rafta, Rafta' in 2007. Her other recent stage work includes 'Much Ado About Nothing' for the Royal Shakespeare Company, 'The Killing of Sister George' in London's West End and 'Shirley Valentine' at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
