My Beautiful Laundrette

About

This November, Hanif Kureishi's iconic and Oscar-nominated screenplay My Beautiful Laundrette comes to the stage. This bold new drama will be presented against a funky backdrop of 80's music composed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe of iconic British pop duo Pet Shop Boys, exploring cultural conflict, gender equality, class and generational strife.

Set in London during the Thatcher years, My Beautiful Laundrette tells the story of young British Pakistani, Omar, who transforms his uncle's run-down laundrette into a thriving business. After being confronted by a fascist gang, Omar recognises school-friend Johnny
and uses their history to diffuse the situation. As they renovate the laundrette together, love blossoms between them. This culture clash comedy is also a subversive work of social realism, sprinkled with magic and joy running through the rich veins of Kureishi's writing.
