    Sun 21 Aug - Tue 23 Aug at 9pm

    A feel-good love story. When Rajesh visits Mumbai he encounters Naresh - not exactly the Indian wife his mother hoped for. The Queer South Asian rom-com you've been waiting for.

    A feel-good love story.

    When handsome, successful, mummy’s-boy Rajesh is sent on a visit to India, he encounters Naresh in a steamy Mumbai nightclub. Naresh is an awkward yet endearing craftsman - and definitely not the wife Rajesh’s mother hoped he’d find.

    Bend it like Beckham meets It's a Sin in this Queer, heart-on-its-sleeve romcom - set just after India's landmark decriminalisation of homosexuality in 2018.

    The Stage ★★★★ "funny and charmingly performed, with some big heart-swilling emotional moments"

    Coming to London straight off a run at Summerhall in this year's Edinburgh Fringe. (Just kidding, we're not 'straight' off anything.) Rajesh and Naresh was written from workshops conducted with members of the Queer South Asian community in London and abroad.

    Voice Mag ★★★★★ “Rajesh and Naresh is a must-watch show [...] that entertains and tugs at the heartstrings”
