East is East

Starring Jane Horrocks and Ayub Khan Din
By Ayub Khan Din
Directed by Sam Yates

Pakistani chip-shop owner George Khan - 'Genghis' to his kids - is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970s Salford. Household tension reaches breaking point as their long-suffering English mother, Ella, gets caught in the cross fire - her loyalties divided between her marriage and the free will of her children.

Starring multi award-winning stage and screen star Jane Horrocks as Ella and East is East playwright Ayub Khan Din in this modern comedy classic about growing up in multiracial England.  

Contains moderate bad language; 12+ recommended
