Approaching Empty

A Tamasha, Kiln Theatre & Live Theatre production

Approaching Empty

by Ishy Din

Directed by Pooja Ghai

Forget friendship! This is business.

In a scruffy minicab office, Mansha decides it’s time to create his own destiny and offers to buy the business from his lifelong friend Raf. As the realities of the state of the company slowly unravel, these two best friends must confront the difficulties of going into business with those closest to them.

Set in Northern England, Approaching Empty is a razor-sharp new drama by award-winning playwright Ishy Din (Snookered, Best New Play at Manchester Theatre Awards), which lays bare the everyday struggles of a post-industrial generation of British men.

The BBC names Approaching Empty as one of the theatre shows you won’t want to miss in 2019
