Amjad has taken up taxi-driving. His dream? To support his family,
make Rabia happy and be good role model to young Yasmin and Faisal.
“Don’t let anyone take what it yours. And don’t take anything someone else has earnt.
This is the worker’s Izzat.”
Life has a familiar rhythm…coping with the kids, eating donuts and barfi and battling unpaid bills. But when Rabia’s stifled ambitions become too much to bear, even the love songs of John Denver or the scent of a Chitral rose can’t sooth her. Set in a town in the East of England, and told with humour and authenticity, this new play by Shamser Sinha shines a light on
the contemporary family experience. It is inspired by conversations with residents in Peterborough and Ipswich.
