The play that gave birth to the smash-hit film – a wonderful comedy about growing up in multiracial Salford.

The six Khan children, entangled in arranged marriages and bell-bottoms, are trying to find their way growing up in 1970s Salford. They are all caught between their Pakistani father’s insistence on Asian traditions, their English mother’s laissez-faire attitude, and their own wish to become citizens of the modern world.

‘First plays don’t come much better than this… full of intelligence, irresistable laughter and serious promise.’ Sunday Times
