“A brave, important and necessary play… If I were running the National, I’d pick up this play pronto to ensure it’s amplified further.” – The Telegraph
“[Asif Khan’s] debut outing as a playwright is impressive, bringing clarity and humour to dark and difficult material.” – The stage
“A vibrant portrait of Muslims grappling with what their faith means today” – The Evening Standard
Bradford, in the month of Ramadan. Latching on to the latest grooming scandal, racists plan to march through the city, while Shaz, a local garage mechanic, desperately tries to keep his business running smoothly so he can marry well. In this combustible atmosphere, his sister Samina is determined to make her voice heard.
Bradford-born Asif Khan’s debut play is a fabulously comic take on the combustion surrounding young British Muslim lives in the North today.
