Time’s running out to see The Infidel, the new stage adaptation of David Baddiel’s hit comedy movie, which has been playing at the Theatre Royal Stratford East during October. Baddiel has written the book and lyrics for the new production, which was funded by a crowd-funding campaign, and has also co-directed the show.
Award-winning Armenian comedian Kev Orkian stars as Mahmoud, the everyday Muslim man, a Muslim “Homer Simpson”, who discovers that not only is he adopted, but that his birth parents were Jewish. The resulting cultural and religious chaos leads to an uproarious and insightful comedy of identity, race, prejudice and confusion.
•The Infidel – The Musical Tuesday-Saturday at 7.30pm, weekend matinees at 3pm.
Tickets, from £7 to £24, from the Box Office on 020-8534 0310, via www.stratfordeast.com or in person at Theatre Royal Stratford East, Gerry Raffles Square, London E15 1BN.
