Manjeet Mann

  • 5 stars across 4 books
Manjeet is an actress and playwright who recently toured her one woman show A Dangerous Woman across the UK ending at the Soho theatre. The inspiration for this story came from a community project that Manjeet created and ran in Birmingham called Run the World. The aim of Run the World was to unite women and empower them through running and other physical activity and then allow space to share their stories. These stories then culminated in a piece of audio theatre. Her aim was to chart the empowerment, strength and solidarity that women can find through running and theatre.
