Black Theatre Live


Love, Bombs and Apples

'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 

''Certainly we can talk in lofty ideals and abstract political arguments, but when we truly examine the human stories that are both defined by and in turn define the broader political picture, Abdulrazzak shows us that nothing is ever simple, nothing is ever neat, and nothing is ever pretty'' LondonTheatre1****

First performed at the Arcola Theatre as part of the Shubbak Festival 2015
