By Ayub Khan Din
Directed by Ben Occhipinti
For the seven kids of George Khan – proud Pakistani and chip shop owner – life is one long compromise.
Tomboy Meenah prefers playing footie to wearing a sari, hippy Saleem pretends to be studying engineering when he’s really at art school, heart-throb Tariq has got a reputation as a local Casanova, and Sajid hasn’t even been circumcised yet! For George, life is an uphill battle to get his family to conform to traditional Pakistani values. When the Khan kids begin to oppose their father, their English mother is forced to make a choice between her love for her husband and the right of her children to make their own ways in the world.
Ayub Khan Din’s comedy about clashing cultures and family drama has won multiple awards, become a BAFTA winning film and is now being brought to life back in Bolton in a hilarious new production.
