Award winning theatre companies Paines Plough and Tamasha are returning to Artrix this month with I Wanna Be Yours, "a tender, funny, lyrical play about finding love".

It's a debut play from London Laureate and Roundhouse Poetry Slam Champion Zia Ahmed and it comes to the Bromsgrove venue on Thursday November 14 at 7pm.

But what can an audience expect?

A spokesman said: "Ella is from Yorkshire. Haseeb is from London. They order a pizza. House red for Ella. Hot chocolate for Haseeb."

Both know they are falling in love, but they are differences and distances to overcome, including religion and the thorny question of one's taste in music.

And then there's the bus or the train fare...

The spokesman added: 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. ..

"I Wanna Be Yours follows hit shows Every Brilliant Thing, Pop Music and With a Little Bit of Luck. In partnership with Tamasha, written by by Zia Ahmed and directed by former Paines Plough trainee director Anna Himali Howard, the play has toured throughout the UK."

Zia is from North West London. He is a London Laureate, having been shortlisted to be the Young Poet Laureate for London 2015/16. He is a former Roundhouse Poetry Slam champion. Zia was Paines Plough’s Channel 4 Playwright in Residence 2016/2017.

Anna is a director and theatre maker. She was Paines Plough's Trainee Director in 2016. She is also an Alumni Artist at the Gate Theatre and an alumnus of Birmingham REP’s Foundry programme.

I Wanna Be Yours was developed with support from the Channel 4 Playwrights’ Scheme. It is suitable for ages 14 and above.
