Ali J

Ali J

Ali is going to die. Blood on his hands. An obstinate passion. Twenty-four hours to live. One final audience. This is the story of Ali J - a stubborn lover, a dreamer - beyond what society allows him. His Islam is fleeting. His love is Bollywood-like. Why would you care? After all, he is Muslim. Direct from its sell-out world premiere India season, Ali J is a powerful and urgent new play about the search for identity, the need for belonging, the uneasy position at the wrong end of inclusivity and about being Muslim in today's India.
