"A wonderfully entertaining and intimate piece of theatre"
 ★★★★ The Upcoming 

Following three critically-acclaimed sell-out runs, the National Youth Theatre present the Edinburgh debut of Mohsin Hamid’s Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist adapted for stage by Stephanie Street and directed by Prasanna Puwanarajah.

Drink tea in a Lahore café with Changez, as he traces his journey back from an America gripped with fear and retribution in the wake of 9/11. A tale for our times that speaks directly to a world that still lives in fear of the ‘other’.
