Love is more than just a game for two. Especially when there's an elephant in the room.

Zia Ahmed's I Wanna Be Yours is a tender, funny, lyrical debut play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you've got.

It premiered on tour of the UK in 2019, in a co-production between Paines Plough and Tamasha, including a run at the Bush Theatre, London.

‘i think i’m falling in love with you’

Press Quotes

'Urgently topical... the execution is exquisite'

Guardian

'Ahmed has beautifully taken what we know [the rom-com] and used it to explore a far more complex and searing relationship than I have seen onstage in a long time... nothing short of spectacular... both challenging and cosy at once'

A Younger Theatre

'A lyrical journey of connection through inner conflict... a delicious mix of humour, heartbreak and political activism'

Broadway World

'A tender romantic comedy incorporating remarkable insights into multicultural Britain... an eye-opening delight'
