Jane Horrocks to star in East Is East

Jane Horrocks to play lead role in new stage version of the classic play.

East Is East

East Is East is returning to the London stage for the first time in 17 years with Jane Horrocks starring as Ella Khan.

Written by award-winning playwright Ayub Khan Din, East is East first premiered at the Royal Court and was turned into a much-loved feature film. Khan Din himself will star in the play opposite Horrocks as her husband George ‘Genghis’ Khan.

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.
