Nikolai Foster brings Hanif Kureishi’s iconic and Oscar-nominated screenplay My Beautiful Laundrette to the stage.

This bold new production of Kureishi’s ground-breaking film, co-produced with Curve, Everyman Theatre Cheltenham and Leeds Playhouse, explores issues of sexuality, cultural conflict, gender equality, class and generational strife, presented against a funky backdrop of 80s music and culture.

Set in London during the Thatcher years, My Beautiful Laundrette tells 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.

If you enjoyed our previous co-productions with Curve of Pink Sari Revolution and Ishy Din’s Wipers this play is for you.

Age recommendation: 15+ This production contains strong language and adult themes including violence and racism.
