Park Theatre · 27 MAY - 20 JUN

Meet Ashraf - an Egyptian, Muslim, taxi driver - and Shazia, his half Egyptian, half Wigan daughter…who is more interested in last call at the bar, than the call to prayer.

Overview

Following Ashraf's trusty taxi, we witness Wigan at its finest - fancy-dress bingo, driving lessons, ex-wives, meddling uncles, hot sauce and plenty of bad karaoke. Full of heart, this father-daughter story contrasts moments of pure joy and silliness with ones that’ll have you reaching for your Kleenex - juggling Allah and Aldi, mosques and mojitos and of course - burkas and bacon butties.

This heart-warming ‘East meets Wigan’ comedy, based on Shamia Chalabi’s real life experiences, gently explores the clashes, compromises and ultimately the comedy that comes with living in a mixed-culture family in contemporary Britain, and whether, despite their many differences, family can win out regardless.

Age Recommendation: 12+
