The P Word

By Waleed Akhtar


RAJ GARCHA as Billy/Bilal



27th November – 9th December 2023, 20:00

Running time  1 hr 30 minutes

Theater Drachengasse, Drachengasse 2, 1010 Vienna or Tel.: 01/5131444


“‘I’m not in your Britain. I’m in another Britain.’

Zafar flees homophobic persecution in Pakistan to seek asylum in the UK. Londoner Bilal (or Billy as he prefers to be known) is ground down by years of Grindr and the complexity of being a brown gay man. 


Their worlds are about to collide and change forever.


Moving through casual hook-ups to the UK’s hostile environment, Waleed Akhtar’s sharp-witted and devastating new play charts the parallel lives of two gay Pakistani men. This story of who wins in the luck of life’s draw was a new Bush Theatre commission. It was extended from its initial running time, in London, due to its immense popularity. It went on to win Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre at the 2023 Olivier Awards. Waleed Akhtar was named Most Promising New Playwright at the 2023 OffWestEnd Awards.


★★★★★ “Tremendous. Devastating. Plays like this are rare.” Time Out
★★★★ “Irresistible. Bewitches with hope, romance and heart.” Guardian

“Gorgeous” Pink News , “Thrillingly moving” The Stage

Ratings: ★★★★★ New European ★★★★★ Hamza Jahanzeb ★★★★ The Times★★★★ Arts Desk


Directed by Joanna Godwin-Seidl / Sound & Film: Dave Moskin
