Bradford-born Asif Khan’s debut play is a fabulously comic take on the combustion surrounding young British Muslim lives in the North.
The play is set in Bradford, during 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 that he can marry well. In this combustible atmosphere, his sister, Samina, is determined to make her voice heard.
This exciting new production will make you laugh out loud as it takes a comic look at the increasingly explosive rhetoric being used in Britain today.
Combustion is generously supported by Philip and Christine Carne (The Carne Trust) and Arts Council England.
