10 Nights – online

by Shahid Iqbal Khan, directed by Kash Arshad

Tamasha and Graeae in association with Bush Theatre

If you missed this three-time Offie Nominated beaut of a show at the Bush Theatre, Shahid Iqbal Khan’s moving and funny play, directed by Kash Arshad, will now be available to view in full from 10-15 January 2022 as a streamed show.

One man’s spiritual journey is about to begin… after he’s sent this tweet.

When Yasser decides to take part in itikaf, sleeping and fasting in the mosque for the last ten nights of Ramadan, he soon regrets his decision. But as he navigates smug worshippers, shared bathrooms, and recurring thoughts of chunky chips, Yasser’s isolation forces him to confront a side of himself he’s been trying to keep hidden.

10 NIGHTS is the story of one man’s journey of self-discovery, and facing the consequences of your actions.

Online performances of 10 NIGHTS begin promptly at 7.30pm GMT on Monday 10 January to Saturday 15 January, or 2.30pm GMT on Wednesday (12 January) and Saturday (15 January).

The stream will be available to watch on demand for 48 hours from the date and time selected. Each online performance is a filmed live show, streamed to audiences. It can be watched on a web browser via Google Chromecast, or Apple TV, Android TV, or Amazon Fire TV. You can find out more about how the streamed online performances work here.

All performances of 10 NIGHTS feature integrated British Sign Language (BSL), integrated Audio Description and will feature open captions in both English and Urdu.
