Shahid Iqbal Khan's 10 NIGHTS embarks on UK Tour in 2024

November 10, 2023

Shahid Iqbal Khan's Olivier Award nominated play 10 NIGHTS will embark on a UK Tour in 2024 - a Phizzical production.

10 Nights was developed through Graeae Theatre Company’s Write To Play programme, and was originally co-produced by Graeae and Tamasha, in association with the Bush Theatre in 2021. Telling a warm story of forgiveness and acceptance, 10 Nights will have audiences embark on a spiritual sleepover, contemplating faith, friendships, and future.

Shahid Iqbal Khan, represented as a Writer by The Production Exchange, commented:

I am really thrilled that 10 Nights is coming back in a brand new production with a fantastic team on board. As a South Asian playwright, it’s a very rare privilege to see one of your plays get another lease of life. I am excited and curious to see what audience members will draw from it this time round. Years later, as I revisit the play, I am struck by how the play presents a visibly Muslim space and has no qualms in holding back. In a world where Islam is often greeted with suspicion, where Muslims are subject to surveillance and intimidation, it is no small thing to have a play that takes us into the heart of a mosque and allows the place to just be – I can’t wait to share this play with audiences beyond London!
