Sanjay Dattani, Rebekah Fleming and Sebastian Sullivan also join the production as Amir, Kate and Mac.
We're excited to announce the news that Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe of iconic British pop duo Pet Shop Boys have joined the production team for our upcoming stage adaptation of Hanif Kureishi’s My Beautiful Laundrette, creating music to bring the 80s-set drama to life.
Speaking about composing music for My Beautiful Laundrette, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe said:
“It’s wonderful to be part of the team bringing My Beautiful Laundrette from the screen to the stage and we’ve enjoyed writing mainly instrumental music to be presented within a British Asian context.”
