This story of who wins in the luck of life’s draw is a new Bush Theatre commission

Review this show

Overview

Zafar flees homophobic persecution in Pakistan to seek asylum in the UK. Londoner Bilal (or Billy as he prefers to be known) is ground down by years of Grindr and the complexity of being a brown gay man. Their worlds are about to change forever.

Moving through casual hook-ups to the UK’s hostile environment, Waleed Akhtar’s sharp-witted and devastating new play charts the parallel lives of two gay Pakistani men.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Critic reviews

The P is for perfection

· Broadway World

Gorgeous, devastating new play

· Time Out

Part gay Bollywood romcom, part nail-biting thriller, and part tragic documentary of the inhumane treatment of gay asylum seekers

The play’s unquestionable humanity is its trump card

· Everything Theatre

All marvelously managed in a great production

· The Arts Desk

An irresistible romance and so much more

· The Guardian

A tremendous two-man rom-com

The actors shine

Alladi is lit by a confidence and certainty
