East is East
The play that gave birth to the smash-hit film - a wonderful comedy about growing up in multiracial Salford.
The six Khan children, entangled in arranged marriages and bell-bottoms, are trying to find their way growing up in 1970s Salford. They are all caught between their Pakistani father's insistence on Asian traditions, their English mother's laissez-faire attitude, and their own wish to become citizens of the modern world.
A revised version of the play, first performed at the Trafalgar Studios in the West End in 2014, is available here.
