The Thelmas present
Ever feel like you are constantly disappointing people? Meet Rumi.
Rumi is a British Pakistani woman who’s referred to as a ‘Coconut’ (brown on the outside, white on the inside) by the rest of the community. Born and brought up as a Muslim, Rumi spends more time enjoying ﬁne wine and bacon than being at the mosque.
When she meets Simon, a white guy, she hopes that his decision to convert to Islam will be enough to keep everyone happy. However, as Simon begins to explore his faith, Rumi’s world spins off its axis in ways she could never have predicted.
How far will she go to preserve the identity she has carved out for herself?
This performance is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means that tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience. Click here to find out more.
