“The whole cast give delightful and sensitive performances in this beautifully
written play…I was held and touched throughout… this is not a play
that preaches. It works because it seems so natural and honest and is so enjoyable
to watch.”

“The Buddha of Suburbia meets Brideshead Revisited in a very modern
retelling set in multicultural London… An enjoyable evening’s entertainment
with well-written comic scenes, fluid direction from Adam Berzsenyi Bellaagh
and engaging performances led by Nila Aalia as the kind of aunt any Mormon or
Muslim would love to have.”

Elder Latimer is here to talk about the truth.

But when the young Mormon lands in London fresh from the States, his world of absolutes starts to crumble. He falls in love with Dina, a young Muslim who’s even more convinced of her faith than he is of his, and so questions of love, truth and faith take on a whole new meaning. While he is beginning to see things in the new light of a new city, Dina’s determination to do what she knows is right has no limits.

Can love conquer all? Can reason?
