My Beautiful Launderette, Leeds Playhouse

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm BST

This bold new production of Hanif Kureishi’s iconic and Oscar-nominated screenplay, explores issues of sexuality, cultural conflict, gender equality, class and generational strife, presented against a funky backdrop of 80s music and culture.

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 Kureshi’s writing.

Curtain 19:45

Tickets £14 – £32
