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

In Soho, at 2 a.m., parallel worlds collide - and Zafar and Billy's lives are about to change forever

The P Word is Waleed Akhtar's sharp-witted and devastating play charting the parallel lives of two gay Pakistani men as they negotiate everything from casual hook-ups to the UK's hostile environment

A story of who wins in the luck of life's draw, it premiered at the Bush Theatre, London in 2022
