Congratulations to Middlesbrough writer Ishy Din, whose play, Snookered, has been programmed as part of the 2012 season at London’s Bush Theatre. The play, which looks at the lives of three young Muslim men, burdened by cultural expectations yet charged with personal dreams, runs from Tuesday 28 February-Saturday 24 March 2012.
On the sixth anniversary of T’s death, his four friends meet as they always do for a game of snooker and a night to celebrate T’s life. As they excavate the past and measure their own lives against T’s, secrets are revealed and allegiances shift as quickly as the drinks are downed. Can they put to rest the guilt they feel over T’s untimely death? And will their friendship survive the final betrayal?
