Love, Bombs & Apples

Funny and poignant, powerful political theatre from award-winning playwright Hassan Abdulrazzak.

This one-man play expertly highlights the problems in today’s global and multicultural landscape, using comedy to bravely tackle problems facing the Arab, Muslim and Jewish communities across the world - a tale of four men, each from different parts of the globe, all experiencing a moment of revelation.

A Palestinian actor learns there is more to English girls than pure sex appeal. A Pakistani-born terror suspect figures out what is wrong with his first novel. A British youth suspects all is not what it seems with his object of desire. A New Yorker asks his girlfriend for a sexual favour at the worst possible time.

Presented by AIK Productions & Turtle Key Arts

Venue: Studio Theatre

This show is followed by a Q&A with Hassan Abdulrazzak (writer) and Asif Khan (actor).

“Chris Morris-like genius” ★★★★ The Stage

 “What is most extraordinary in this exploration of the ordinary is the performance of the only actor Asif Khan, who jumps between scenes and characters with such ease and deftness ... A truly exceptional performance.” ★★★★ London Theatre1 (read the full review)

“Witty and insightful” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“Grinningly sharp comedy, grabbed by the scruff of its neck by Khan and shaken out into pointedly full-blooded laughter.” ★★★★ Fest

“The kind of theatre that gives one hope ... Abdulrazzak’s writing bursts with originality and freshness, Muslim voices and characters as you’ve never seen them, deliciously human.” ★★★★ Reviewsgate (read the full review)

"It’s so varied, and each segment is so densely packed with dramatic flair, that it holds the audience perhaps even more firmly in its thrall ... Director Rosamunde Hutt has given full shape to each monologue so that they ... are bursting with the vitality of their characters throughout." ★★★★ The Reviews Hub (read the full review)
