HarrowArts: MUJU presents: The Spark – March 22, 2012

MUJU presents a double bill of two, new plays.

MY DUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE – Preview / Rehearsed Reading

“They’re just sad places for sad people.”

Samina is desperate to hold on to Suds, her parents’ dilapidated laundrette. With a buyer in the bag, her brother can’t wait to sell, but a failed musician and a persistent customer are getting in the way… A play about love, loss and laundry, My Dutiful Laundrette explores what adapting to survive means for both the high street and tradition.

By Yasmeen Khan and directed by Alexander Summers

FLIRTING WITH FAITH

Trying to find love in a metropolis is hard. Trying to find someone of faith is even harder. MUJU Upstarts take a fun and thoughtful look at the dating game, culminating in a uniquely modern Vaudeville experience. Come on you’ve pulled, but remember to keep the chat halal and the dress kosher…

MUJU Upstarts gives a platform to new performers, whatever their experience, helping to nurture new talent in the Muslim and Jewish communities. Flirting With Faith is MUJU Upstarts second work.

Directed by Waleed Akhtar and devised with the MUJU Upstarts.

Created in 2003 and resident at Tricycle Theatre, MUJU are the UK’s leading Muslim-Jewish theatre collective. MUJU brings Muslims and Jews together through a collaborative process and a shared passion for creating art.www.muju.org.uk.
