Pakistani chip-shop owner George Khan - Genghis to his kids - is determined to give his children a strict Muslim upbringing against the unforgiving backdrop of 1970s Salford. Household tension reaches breaking point as their long-suffering English mother, Ella, gets caught in the cross fire - her loyalties divided between her marriage and the free will of her children.
The 25th anniversary production of East is East is at the National Theatre from October 2021.
