East is East
Salford 1970: the Khan children, caught between bell-bottoms and arranged marriages, are buffeted this way and that by their Pakistani father's insistence on tradition, their English mother's laissez-faire and their own wish to be citizens of the modern world. Co-produced by Tamasha Theatre Company, the Birmingham Rep and the Royal Court, East is East played to sold-out house in Birmingham, Sheffield, Salford, Bristol and London (at the Royal Court Upstairs and Theatre Royal, Stratford East) before returning to the Royal Court for a longer run downstairs. In 1999, it was made into a film of the same name, directed by Damien O'Donnell.
