A brick wall partially painted yellow has a graffiti style image of a child in a large parka jacket holding a camera on a red strap. Beside him are the words East is East.

East is East

Audio described inhouse.

The 25th anniversary production.

Salford, 1971.

George Khan wants to raise his family in the traditional Pakistani way, but his children have other ideas. Abdul and Tariq aren’t ready to be married off, Saleem is pushing artistic boundaries, Meenah’s skirt is too short and Sajit just wants to hide in his parka.

As relations reach breaking point, their English mother, Ella, is torn between her loyalty to George and the happiness of her children.

Ayub Khan Din’s much-loved comedy drama, adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film, reopens the Lyttelton theatre as part of a 25th anniversary tour, directed by Iqbal Khan.
