Imaam Imraan

Past Production The Old Rep

National Youth Theatre present the world-premiere of

Imaam Imraan

A world premiere by award-winning Bradford born playwright and actor Asif Khan, imaginatively directed by National Theatre and RSC director Iqbal Khan.

Imaam Imraan is a compelling and comic new drama following the story of a Bradford born actor returning to his roots to rediscover his identity. Asif Khan’s 2017 debut COMBUSTION was nominated for OffWestEnd’s Best New Play award and Best Writer in the Stage Debut awards. In 2018 he won the Channel 4 Playwright’s Scheme award and in 2017 he was named on the 2017 BBC New Talent Hotlist.

Following the success of The Reluctant Fundamentalist in 2018, the National Youth Theatre return to the Bradford Literature Festival with a cast made up of Britain’s most exciting young talent.
