East Is East
w Trafalgar Studio One
East Is East is a hilarious modern classic about growing up in multiracial England. Pakistani chip shop owner George Khan (Ayub Khan Din) is determined to give his children a strict muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970's Salford. Household tension reaches breaking point as their long suffering English mother, Ella (Jane Harrocks) gets caught in the cross fire; her loyalties divided between her marriage and the free will of her children.
The play is written by and starring Ayub Khan Din (My Beautiful Laundrette, East Is East) alongside multi-award winning Jane Harrocks (Sunshine on Leith, Little Voice, Life is Sweet, Absolutely Fabulous).
