In 1993, Caroline Goffin discovered the history of Indian soldiers fighting on the Western Front via a play written by Dominic Rai. Due to the impact this play made she used her lifelong administrative skills in Mán Melá Theatre Company (1994 to date) including the dramatisation of Across the Black Waters by Mulk Raj Anand in 1998, and linked symposium at the Imperial War Museum in London for Remembrance weekend, combining literature and history. Her interest is in the way fiction and the voices of individuals bring historical facts to life.
