The Reluctant Fundamentalist 


Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist
Adapted for stage by Stephanie Street
Directed by Prasanna Puwanarajah

“Street turns this best-selling book into a compelling memory play. It crystallises Hamid’s tale of a young Pakistani’s infatuation and disenchantment with corporate America with style and slickness.” A Younger Theatre

“It is mind blowing to think that all of the cast are under the age of 25 – yet deliver such weighted, specific and delicate performances.” 4.5 Stars – Reviews Hub

Following its world premiere in summer 2016 the first ever stage production of Mohsin Hamid’s Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel and Hollywood blockbuster film returns this August.

National Youth Theatre’s retelling of this epic story of love and loss, examines the ironies of prejudice and representation in post 9/11 New York, tracing Pakistani native Changez’s disenchantment with the West and his journey back to Lahore. 

Prasanna Puwanarajah’s production, adapted for stage by Stephanie Street (Sisters), will see members of the original National Youth Theatre cast return.
