When Gaby disappears from her Scottish home, it is assumed that her Pakistani father, Farhan, has kidnapped her. The spiralling headlines are only momentarily silenced when it emerges that Gaby may have fled of her own accord, choosing to spend her life in Pakistan. To the distress of her Scottish mother, Suzy, Gaby declares, ‘My name is Ghazala’, turning her back on ‘Gaby’ and, seemingly, the West.

This moving verbatim play reveals a cross-cultural love story that began in late-seventies Glasgow, a world away from the frantic tug-of-love well documented in the world's press.
