Theatre: I Wanna Be Yours

Paines Plough and Tamasha present I Wanna Be Yours by Zia Ahmed.

Ella is from Yorkshire. Haseeb is from London. They order a pizza. House red for Ella. Hot chocolate for Haseeb.

"I think I'm falling in love with you."

People and playlists. Christmas and Eid. Travelcards and Megabuses. London to Leeds.

Love is more than just a game for two. Especially when there's an elephant in the room.

Note: This performance will be BSL integrated.
