Kali Theatre

Ready Or Not

Naylah Ahmed

Directed by: Helena Bell

Why would a retired teacher take a young Muslim man hostage in her living room?

In this timely political thriller from Naylah Ahmed (winner of the Bruntwood prize for playwriting), an innocent encounter soon develops into a dangerous game of hide and seek with the truth.

Regret and loss collide with fear and paranoia in this powerful new play for our times. When reality is distorted by ‘alternative facts’, is the enemy concealed – or to be found closer to home?

Kali Theatre has been presenting groundbreaking new plays by South Asian women for over 20 years. New Artistic Director Helena Bell directs this sharp, thought-provoking drama, arriving in London as part of a UK tour.
