East is EastAward-winning playwright Ayub Khan Din's first play, East is East, which premiered at the Royal Court and was later turned into a much-loved feature film, returns to the London stage after 17 years starring Jane Horrocks (Young Vic's Annie Get Your Gun, Sunshine on Leith, The Rise And Fall Of Little Voice, Absolutely Fabulous) as Ella Khan. The author co-stars in his own play for the first time, stepping into his semi-autobiographical take on British Asian life set in 1970s Salford to play her husband, Pakistani chip-shop owner George 'Genghis' Khan. Directed by acclaimed young director Sam Yates, East is East follows Richard III in Jamie Lloyd's second season for Trafalgar Transformed and runs from 4 October 2014 to 3 January 2015.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
