“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 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.
