Strictly Balti
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A show for anyone who ever felt a little bit different growing up... Ballroom dancing is not the only humiliation heaped on a young Saikat. There's public poetry, catechism, and no one getting his name right, ever. Join Saikat as he dances precariously through his dual-identity childhood, torn between the familiar sights of Birmingham and the mysteries of Bangladesh. Meet werewolves in the playground, nuns in the corridors and tangerines in the dancehall... The play takes a humorous look at what it means to be British from someone who had to learn the hard way.
