This play is set in London, in an Indian restaurant, I guess in the 80s.
It is about racism. The racism of a couple of clients, an upper class barrister and girlfriend, who treat the waiter/owner of the restaurant (and his wife) like a servant, and the racism of two skinheads thugs who bully and terrorize the Indian couple.
The subject matter sadly remains current in today’s Britain and it can be uncomfortable to watch all the physical and verbal violence.
Probably the play is too wordy, but the strong acting throughout makes the difference.
The female power behind the pain, sorrow and endurance of hatred played by Natalie Perera, with dignity was remarkable. Victoria Broom was very good playing the flirty girlfriend of the snob barrister, and Mitchell Fisher was totally believable and scary in showing his anger and violence.
Although this play might not tell anything new, it is a alarming overview into reality.
