Theatre Visit: Matinee ‘My Beautiful Launderette’

October 19 @ 14:30

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.
