The Battle of Green Lanes

Welcome to Green Lanes in North London where Erol has been working in his dad’s café since leaving college – he’s a Turkish Cypriot.
His best mate Tom is getting grief from mum Anastasia to get married. Tom is a Greek Cypriot like the rest of the gang – Cos, Babs and Chris. Erol’s seeing Maria – another Greek - but she doesn’t want a Muslim to father her child. His dad Remzi and uncle Engin are plotting to get rich back in Northern Cyprus and will sell-up and go, with or without Erol.
But, most importantly of all, his two newest friends Abdullah and Kysar have been helping him become a ‘real’ Muslim and join them in the holy fight to re-establish The Islamic State.
Erol is now on a path that may change the world – and no one told him that living down Green Lanes would be so complicated.
The Battle of Green Lanes is a dangerous new play by first-time writer Cosh Omar. It launched the opening season of work by Theatre Royal Stratford East’s new Artistic Director Kerry Michael.
