"A truly exceptional performance.” London Theatre 1
“the kind of theatre that gives one hope, in ninety exhilarating minutes, Abdulrazzak’s writing bursts with originality and freshness.” Reviewsgate
Love, Bombs & Apples is an extremely funny and poignant one man play, written by the award winning Hassan Abdulrazzak and performed by Asif Khan, it has a sharp cutting edge for today's multi-cultural Britain. Using comedy as a vehicle to bravely tackle problems facing the Arab, Jewish and Muslim communities across the world, it is 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.
It was selected from over a 100 scripts to be part of the PlayWROUGHT3 festival and was premiered at the Arcola, London in July 2015 as part of the Shubbak Festival. In the summer of 2016 it returned, by popular demand, for a four week run at the Arcola followed by a UK tour.
Hassan Abdulrazzak is of Iraqi origin, born in Prague and living in London. His first play Baghdad Wedding, was staged at Soho Theatre in 2007 to great acclaim. It went on to have productions in Australia and India and was also broadcast on BBC radio 3.
