The North Wall presents

Brown Boys Swim

Written by Karim Khan Directed by John Hoggarth

Best friends Mohsen and Kash are gearing up for the biggest night of their lives – Jess Denver’s pool party. There’s just one problem…they can’t swim.

Fuelled by halal Haribo and chicken wings, the pair throw themselves in at the deep end, tackling cramped cubicles and cold showers as they learn how to be at one with the water.

Fierce, funny, and brimming with heart, Karim Khan examines the pressures faced by young Muslim men in this exhilarating new play about fitting in and striking out.

Karim Khan is an alumnus of The North Wall’s ArtsLab programme, having taken part in Catalyst 2019. He is a North Wall Propeller Artist 2021-2022 and is a recent recipient of Riz Ahmed’s Left Handed Films and Pillars Fund inaugural fellowship.
