Love, Bombs & Apples

Hassan Abdulrazzak

Directed by: Rosamunde Hutt

Love, Bombs & Apples is the hilarious and poignant new play from award-winning playwright Hassan Abdulrazzak (Baghdad Wedding, The Prophet) – a tale of four men, each from different parts of the globe, all experiencing a moment of revelation.

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.

Following a sold-out first run at Arcola last year, Asif Khan returns to play all four roles.
