Indian-British playwright Ishy Din is back with a brand-new play for the London theatre stage! The award-winning playwright and former Writer in Residence at the Manchester Royal Exchange is perhaps best known for authoring his debut semi-autobiographical play, Snookered, which won the award for Best New Play at the 2013 Manchester Theatre Awards.

All friendships aside, Mansha means business!

In a shabby minicab office in Northern England, Mansha decides to forge his own path in life, offering to buy out the business from his best mate, Raf. But the company has some dirty secrets that begin to unravel before Mansha’s very eyes and soon these two men are forced to overcome the many difficulties of running a business with their closest pals.

Taking place amongst a post-industrial generation shortly after Margaret Thatcher’s death, this gripping new drama by award-winning playwright Ishy Din will capture your heart and soul!

Caitlyn Hasenfratz27th January

I thoroughly enjoyed this play, it was very quick-paced and the characters were clear. I loved the unfolding of the conflict between all the characters and the way their relationships were examined. Bravo to whole cast and crew!

Elizabeth Tapper20th January

Absorbing and interesting plot. Very well acted especially the girl. Is she really like that?!!

Valeria Quinton20th January

Excellent performance which translates so well the political, social background for people in the UK at that critical time. Also, the principles, expectations will still sound very familiar these days.
