An Indian Abroad

“A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the ‘spiritual journey’”

★★★★ – PubTheatres Magazine

“That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It’s a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch.”

☆☆☆☆ – Kris Hallett, Bristol Post reviewer

“The best comedy can both make us laugh and make us think; An Indian Abroad succeeds on both fronts.” – Blog of Theatre Things”


Stifled by life in middle-class India, Krishnan takes a gap year to Britain to find himself. What does his journey teach him about himself and the world? And what happens when he falls in love with a native?

Pariah Khan is a writer, performer and professional wrestling manager. He was voted one of Bristol’s 24 most influential young people for his work in theatre and comedy and was chosen by BBC Three as one of the UK’s top 50 creative young people in the UK.

Written & Performed by Pariah Khan
Directed by Eduardo Gama

Supported by: Arts Council England, Rising Arts Agency, Creative Youth Network, Arnolfini Arts
