The Funeral Director by Iman Qureshi




2018 Papatango Prize winner
Chosen from a record 1,384 entries, Iman Qureshi’s play tells the story of Ayesha, director of a Muslim funeral parlour, who must consider the values of her community, her faith and even her marriage when a gay customer walks in. Forced to confront a secret she has hidden even from herself, Ayesha must decide who she is – no matter the cost. Hailed as a “bit of a cracker” (Guardian), the play will tour in March 2019.
