Post-show Q&A with the creative team after each evening performance

A Palestinian actor learns there is more to English girls than pure sex appeal. A Pakistani-born terror suspect figures out what is wrong with his first novel. A British youth suspects all is not what it seems with his object of desire. A New Yorker asks his girlfriend for a sexual favour at the worst possible time.

Love, Bombs & Apples is the comic tale of four men, each from different parts of the globe, all experiencing a moment of revelation.

It was one of 12 new plays specially selected for a rehearsed reading in Arcola’s PlayWROUGHT Festival in January 2015. Now it receives its first full staging as part of Shubbak – A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture.

Play by Hassan Abdulrazzak (Baghdad Wedding), performed by Asif Khan, directed by Rosamunde Hutt and assistant director Clemmie Reynolds. Designed by Mila Sanders with music by James Hesford and lighting by Charlie Lucas.

A post-show Q&A with the creative team will take place after each evening performance.
