Combustion

AIK Productions with Tara Arts presents

Weds 17 May – Sat 27 May. 7.30pm + 2.30 Thurs 25 & 3pm Sat 20 & 27 matinees


By Asif Khan, BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017.

Asif Khan’s debut play is a fabulously comic take on the combustion surrounding young British Muslim lives.

Directed by Nona Shepphard
Designed by Mila Sanders

Bradford, in the month of Ramadan. Latching on to the latest grooming scandal, racists plan to march through the city, while Shaz, a local garage mechanic, desperately tries to keep his business running smoothly so he can marry well. In this combustible atmosphere, his sister Samina is determined to make her voice heard.

Tara is thrilled to have been part of the journey for this new play and to be hosting its world premier debut. Please don’t forget you can order your arrival and interval drinks online when booking tickets and Ben’s Canteen offer a fantastic pre-theatre dinner offer, just a four minute walk away.

The production is generously supported by Philip and Christine Carne (The Carne Trust) and Arts Council England.
