MY DUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE
“They’re just sad places for sad people.”
Samina is desperate to hold on to Suds, her parents’ dilapidated laundrette. With a buyer in the bag, her brother can’t wait to sell, but a failed musician and a persistent customer are getting in the way… A play about love, loss and laundry, My Dutiful Laundrette explores what adapting to survive means for both the high street and tradition.
Resident at the Tricycle Theatre, The MUJU Crew have been performing since 2003 and have built a reputation for high quality devising, championing new writing and sketch comedy. Their last production, Extreme Prevention, a comedy sketch show about extremism, played to sold-out audiences in London and Brighton.
Written by Yasmeen Khan, directed by Alexander Summers and performed by Raphael Bar, Georgina Bednar, Yasmeen Khan and Salman Siddiqui.
FLIRTING WITH FAITH
Trying to find love in a metropolis is hard. Trying to find someone of faith is even harder. MUJU Upstarts take a fun and thoughtful look at the dating game, culminating in a uniquely modern Vaudeville experience. Come on you’ve pulled, but remember to keep the chat halal and the dress kosher…
MUJU Upstarts gives a platform to new performers, whatever their experience, helping to nurture new talent in the Muslim and Jewish communities. Flirting With Faith is MUJU Upstarts second work.
Directed by Waleed Akhtar and devised with the MUJU Upstarts.
