First look at Madani Younis’ final production, cite>An Adventure, at the Bush Theatre
Inspired by the experiences of his immigrant grandparents, Vinay Patel’s An Adventure is a drama of unprecedented scope and heart, spanning seven decades and three continents.
Featuring Nila Aalia, Martins Imhangbe, Aysha Kala, Selva Rasalingam, Shubham Saraf and Anjana Vasan, the production opens at Bush Theatre on 6 September 2018.
An Adventure follows headstrong Jyoti and her fumbling suitor Rasik as they ride the crest of the fall of Empire from the shores of post-Partition India to the forests of Mau Mau Kenya onto the industrial upheaval of 1970s London and the present day.
But what happens when youthful ambitions crash hard against reality? When you look back at the story of your time together, can you bear to ask yourself: Was it all worth it?
Witty, charming and full of fearless historical insight, An Adventure is an epic, technicolor love story from one of the country’s most promising young writers about the people who journeyed to these shores in hope and shaped the Britain we live in today.
