An Indian Abroad

Stifled by life in middle-class India, Krishnan is desperate to see more of the world, so he visits the exotic island of Great Britain to learn about life and who he is. What does Krishnan's journey teach him about the world? What might he learn about himself? And what happens when he falls in love with one of the natives?

“A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the ‘spiritual journey’” ★★★★ PubTheatres Magazine

"That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It’s a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch." ★★★★ Bristol Post

"The best comedy can both make us laugh and make us think; An Indian Abroad succeeds on both fronts." Blog of Theatre Things
