Part of ShoutOut Festival 2019
Presented by Ellandar Productions
In the Old Church Room
A heart at war in the peace capital of the world.
Adham is a silent and brooding middle-aged tragedy, standing outside a Mosque in North London. Waiting. It’s raining. Tea, an umbrella, and friendship arrive.
Two years later Adham’s boss invites him on holiday to “set him up”. Panic-stricken and wanting to bat away her advances he fabricates a husband, but when the plan backfires he’s got to convince someone to act the part…Who best but his Imam and absolutely platonic friend Raushan? The rest is what you’d expect: a call to adventure in the Alps, a meet-cute over antique books & Parisian coffee, a quarrel, and a sweet love with gardening gloves.
From award-winning company Ellandar Productions,Nemo Martin’s [The Cobbled Streets of Geneva] is a warm queer romantic comedy about how role-playing new lives might bring us closer to who we really are.

"It is rare to find a RomCom written for theatre and even rarer to find a good one, which is exactly what this is.” - BBC Writers Room
“It is a gentling of story, a caretaking of truths that invites revelation, and the result is utterly beautiful.” - Jenifer Toksvig
