Deven will be playing Maneer in a Northern Stage and Nottingham Playhouse co-production of EAST IS EAST, directed by Suba Das.

A brand new production of the Olivier Award-winning comedy that went on to become a BAFTA-winning film sensation.

Chip shop owner George has his work cut out as head of the Khan household. Back in George’s homeland Pakistan, a father rules the house; but in 1970s Salford, as Britain evolves and rebels, his teenage children are proving quite the challenge. Amidst chain smoking and rounds of tea, George’s English wife Ella tries to keep the peace between the man she loves and the children who are desperately trying to find their own way in a rapidly changing world.

This modern comedy classic shares the joy, chaos and love of family life.

The show runs at the Northern stage from 18th April – 13th May 2017.

Then transfers to the Nottingham Playhouse from 22nd May – 10th June 2017.
