Play reading: Jamil's Legendary Stag Night by Asif Khan
Jamil, a gravedigger and recent convert to Islam has planned a quiet night in before his wedding, like a ‘good Muslim boy’. However, his best mate Kash has organised a last minute stag do, at their place of work, Janaza, a funeral service building. As the night hilariously falls apart, Jamil is forced to ask himself serious questions about his faith and friendship with Kash. His unruly past refuses to be shaken off and an unexpected visitor turns everything topsy turvy.
Will he make it to the mosque on time? Or at all?!
Following his first full-length play Combustion at the 2017 Festival, Asif Khan returns with a first reading of his new comedy Jamil’s Legendary Stag Night , commissioned by Rifco Theatre Company, Watford Palace Theatre and supported by the Channel 4 Playwright Scheme.
