Sunandha is a Charles Wallace scholar currently in London pursuing an MA in Text and Performance from Birkbeck College and RADA. She is originally from Chennai, India and has been an actor, later writer and finally director in English theatre in Chennai for over 13 years. She has worked with some of the biggest names in Chennai collaborating with The Madras Players, Justus Repertory, Crea Shakthi and Theatre Nisha.

Her Tamil play Mundhirikkotte, developed as part of The Royal Court’s International Writing Programme, premiered in 2016 in Mumbai’s prestigious Prithvi Theatre as part of India’s New Writing Festival. Sunandha has written the screenplay for ‘Irudhi Suttru’ which attained critical and commercial success in 2016. Sunandha is also trained in Kalaripayattu, an ancient Indian martial art and has learned Indian classical dance, Bharatanatyam.

Guduguduppukkari was created by Sunandha and dancer-director Anitha expressly to tell stories of light when there's so much cause for darkness and despair. The herald of good times, we hope Guduguduppukkari can shine light on tales of hope, grace and love and remind people that good times are indeed around the corner. Guduguduppukkari premiered 'Mundhirikkotte' at the prestigious New Writing Festival at Prithvi Theatre in Mumbai.

Based on a true story, Magical Plastic Chicken is a blackly comedic exploration of degradation and revolt. At an airport, a chicken is suspected to be a bomb.

A woman of colour is screened for domestic radicalisation, while her interrogators slowly convince themselves of the merits of performing a violent and radical act of their own.

Magical Plastic Chicken is written by Rebecca Nada-Rajah, a graduate of the Royal Court Theatre’s Young Writers Programme, member of the Traverse 50 and a recent winner of the New Playwrights’ Award from Playwrights Studio Scotland.

Written in the early 1920s and intended to be part of Back to Methuselah but never performed.

The play contains a witty portrait of Shaw’s great friend, G.K. Chesterton and takes a comic look
at unfaithful husbands and the women who pursue them.
