Too Close To Home

Rasa in association with the Library Theatre Company and Lyric, Hammersmith present

Huddled in a world of extraordinary events, an ordinary Muslim family gathers during Ramadan to pray and to break the fast. In the course of a long day’s journey into night, family conflicts are rife, and buried secrets are not the only ones exposed.
Influenced by writers such as Chekhov, O’Neil and Miller, Rani Moorthy brings her generous warmth and vitality to a family catapulted into crisis. As attitudes to Islam divide the generations and a new modern world order challenges religious identity, this powerful and vibrant drama asks ‘Do you really know what is going on under your own roof?’
“Rarely have I seen such talent or intimate contact with the pulse
of this nation” The Independent
Rasa return to the Library Theatre after the outstanding success of Curry Tales, which has now been seen in over 80 UK venues. Post-show discussion with the writer and cast on Thursday November 16th.
