A lyrical, funny and tender play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you’ve got comes to Barking next week.
Zia Ahmed's debut play I Wanna Be Yours tells the story of London poet Haseeb and Ella, an actor from rural Yorkshire, who both live in the capital and fall giddily in love.
But as their relationship develops, cracks start to appear due to differences in their cultural backgrounds and underlying tensions in their lives.
It is an examination of romantic love, understanding, patience, empathy and the struggle that Ella and Haseeb must embark on in order to find a way for their love to survive.
Co-produced by Paines Plough and Tamasha, I Wanna Be Yours is touring nationally over the next three months, with a performance at Studio 3 Arts (Galleon Community Centre, Boundary Road, Barking) on Monday, October 21, at 7pm.
