Bold new staging of Hanif Kureishi's iconic screenplay is presented against a 'funky' backdrop of 80s music & culture while exploring cultural conflict, gender equality, class & generational strife.

Set in London during the Thatcher years, this is the story of young British Pakistani, Omar, who transforms his uncle's run-down laundrette into a thriving business. After being confronted by a fascist gang, Omar recognises school-friend Johnny and uses their history to diffuse the situation. As they renovate the laundrette together, love blossoms between them. This culture clash comedy is also a subversive work of social realism, sprinkled with magic and joy running through the rich veins of Kureishi's writing.

Recommended for ages 15+. This production contains strong language and adult themes (including violence and racism) and may not be suitable for younger audience members.
