10 Nights

by Shahid Iqbal Khan, directed by Kash Arshad

Tamasha and Graeae in association with Bush Theatre

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.

A moving and funny new play by Shahid Iqbal Khan and directed by Kash Arshad, 10 NIGHTS is the story of one man’s journey of self-discovery, and facing the consequences of your actions.

All performances of 10 Nights will be audio described, and will creatively integrate captioning and British Sign Language (BSL).

Due to the current pandemic, 10 NIGHTS is suspended until the Bush Theatre can re-open. We hope to share this incredible new play with you in the near future.
