A new play, ‘If Only Shahrukh Khan…’ by award winning theatre company Rasa premieres at Theatre in the Mill on Wednesday 23 October. Featuring writers and actors from Doctors, Eastenders, Casualty and Citizen Khan, the cast invite audiences to join the Shahrukh Khan fan club and prepare for a bumpy ride.
The international superstar Shahrukh Khan means different things to three Asian women, Rose, Pindy and Kasi who have shared a house for 25 years. In the interim years there might have been friendships, adventures, lost loves and limited work lives but now in their older years there is a strong sense that their best lives were left behind in their homeland, Kenya, along with their secrets. The fan club is their only joy and escape. If Only Shahrukh Kahn…. offers an intimate account of the inner lives and thoughts of these three very different women with in this powerful and exciting theatre performance.

Iain Bloomfield (Artistic Director of Theatre in the Mill) commented, “We are delighted to be welcoming Rasa Theatre’s Rani Moorthy back to Theatre in the Mill after her wonderful performance last season in 15 Minutes Live by Slung Low. Delighted also, as part of our Black History Month programme, to be welcoming not so much a performer as an institution, Rani makes unique work.”
