Daughters of the Curry Revolution

Afreena Islam

Tickets on sale: Friday 3rd Feb

“When I was little, I used to hang out at my dad’s restaurant every weekend, back when they used to stay open until 5am. After a hard days toil running round like I owned the place for a bit, I would fall asleep to the CCTV; my body on the chest freezer, and my head resting on a pile of tablecloths.”

In this intimate performance, Afreena invites you to take a seat around her dinner table as she serves up secondhand stories of her father’s past, present, and what little she imagines is left of his future.

Exploring what it means to be her dad’s daughter in the context of the anti-immigration rhetoric she is surrounded by, Afreena follows her dad’s journey to this country, and his journey to this day.

Please note during this show alcohol is consumed and curry powder will be used.
