In August 2013, Komola was joined by a creative team on a journey to Bangladesh to film Birangona women's firsthand accounts and develop a research and development theatrical piece based on their stories. Three shows were performed at the Liberation War Museum and the EMK Centre in Dhaka. Feedback from these audiences was used to inform the development of a full production in
the UK. The final show toured the UK in the spring of 2014, before returning to Bangladesh in the winter of 2014.
