What should be a happy day for the family is clouded over with memories of the past, and when a neighbour arrives unexpectedly, bringing with him a Westerner’s view of marriage and relationships, things take an unexpected turn.

This play is set in contemporary London and addresses issues such as the refugee crisis and differing cultural perceptions of sexuality and arranged marriage.
