Running Time: Approximately 2 hours including interval
Pakistani chip-shop owner George Khan - "Genghis" to his kids - is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970s Salford. Household tension reaches breaking point as their long-suffering English mother, Ella, gets caught in the cross fire - her loyalties divided between her marriage and the free will of her children.
Starring multi award-winning stage and screen star Jane Horrocks (Young Vic’s Annie Get Your Gun, Sunshine on Leith, The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice, Absolutely Fabulous) as Ella and award-winning playwright and actor Ayub Khan Din as George. With a host of the finest new British acting talent as the remainder of the Khan family, this long awaited revival of a modern comedy classic promises to be unmissable.
