Tickets on Sale Now!
An Outstanding New Comedy
Written by David Baddiel. Starring Omid Djalili, Matt Lucas,
Richard Schiff, Miranda Hart, Tracy-Ann Oberman, Dave Schneider
Meet Mahmud Nasir, loving husband, doting father, and admittedly "relaxed" Muslim.
He may not be the most observant, but in his heart he is as Muslim as it gets. But after his mother's death a discovery turns
Mahmud's world upside down. He finds his birth certificate which reveals that not only was he adopted at birth…but he's Jewish, and
his real name is Solly Shimshillewitz! As Mahmud tumbles headlong into a full scale identity crisis, the only person he can turn to
is Lenny, a drunken Jewish cabbie who agrees to give him lessons in Jewishness, which start with how to dance like Topol!
Featuring a stellar cast including treasured comic Omid Djalili, The West Wing's Richard Schiff, top comedienne Miranda Hart, the
ever-hilarious Matt Lucas, and written by David Baddiel, The Infidel is the laugh-out loud comedy of the year. Oy Vey!
Event introduced by David Baddiel with live comedy from Omid Djalili.
