Pakistani chip shop owner George Khan - ‘Genghis’ to his kids - is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing in 1970s Salford.

Overview

Following its sensational West End run as part of the Trafalgar Transformed season, one of the best British comedies delights the nation this summer.

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

Award-winning actress Pauline McLynn (Father Ted, Shameless and EastEnders) stars as Ella with Simon Nagra (Dara and Rafta Rafta for National Theatre) as George and Ashley Kumar (EastEnders) as Tariq Khan. They are joined by a host of the finest British acting talent completing the Khan family and friends. This critically acclaimed production of Ayub Khan Din’s modern classic promises to be unmissable, as it makes its long awaited return to the stage following the international success of the film.
