I Wanna Be Yours

I Wanna Be Yours written by Zia Ahmed
Monday 21 October at Studio 3 Arts

A Paines Plough and Tamasha production.

Love is more than just a game for two. Especially when there’s an elephant in the room.

Ella is from Yorkshire. Haseeb is from London. They order a pizza. House red for Ella. Hot chocolate for Haseeb.
“I think I’m falling in love with you.”
People and playlists. Christmas and Eid. Travelcards and Megabuses. London to Leeds.
Love is more than just a game for two. Especially when there’s an elephant in the room.
A tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love and holding onto it with everything you’ve got. I WANNA BE YOURS is the debut play from Zia Ahmed.
