An Indian Abroad

4 Temple Row W, Birmingham, West Midlands, B2 5NY
An Indian Abroad

About

Stifled by life in middle-class India, Krishnan is desperate to see more of the world, so he visits the exotic island of Great Britain to learn about life and who he is. What does Krishnan's journey teach him about the world? What might he learn about himself? And what happens when he falls in love with one of the natives?

"A generous and hilarious writer and performer with a keen eye for detail and impeccable comic timing. Hari has a big future ahead of him" - Nikesh Shukla, Editor of The Good Immigrant

Pariah Khan is a writer, performer, filmmaker and professional wrestling manager. He was named one of Bristol's most influential young people for his work in theatre and comedy. He was selected by BBC Three and The Latimer Group as one of the UK's top 50 creative young people and he was selected by Channel 4's Random Acts to write and direct his first short film 'Slice'.

The show has already toured to Clevedon's Theatre Shop, Swindon Fringe Festival, Bread & Roses Theatre, The Wardrobe Theatre and York Theatre Royal. In 2019 it will tour to Tara Arts in London, Rondo Theatre in Bath, Oxford Playhouse, Upstairs at the Western in Leicester and Derby Theatre. And now it comes to Birmingham's Old Stock Theatre!

Written and Performed by Pariah Khan
Directed by Manga Theatre's Eduardo Gama

Reviews:

"A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the 'spiritual journey'" ★★★★ - PubTheatres Magazine

"That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It's a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch." ☆☆☆☆ - Kris Hallett

"The best comedy can both make us laugh and make us think; An Indian Abroad succeeds on both fronts." - Blog of Theatre Things
