About: The Knot

“MARRIAGE IS THIS CONTRACT EVERYBODY SIGNS WHILST IGNORING THE FINE PRINT – BUT WE ALL KNOW WHAT IT SAYS.
IT TELLS US THAT THIS RELATIONSHIP WILL BECOME STALE AND MECHANICAL AND IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE EVERYTHING THAT CAN BE SAID HAS BEEN SAID; EVERY EMOTION YOU CAN FEEL TOWARDS THIS PERSON, YOU WILL HAVE FELT.
YOU WILL EXHAUST EVERY POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR EXCITEMENT, ANY CHANCE FOR DISCOVERY.
MY POINT IS, BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I KNOW WHAT I'M GETTING MYSELF IN TO.
I’M NOT TRYING TO SAY MARRIAGE IS BULLSHIT.
ALL I’M SAYING IS PICK THE RIGHT PERSON.”

Aiden is trying to bring his Argentinian fiancé to the UK but their relationship is cracking under the weight of bureaucracy.

Imran left his Pakistani family to marry an Indian. After twenty years of marriage, he has just discovered his wife cheating and now has to endure a lengthy divorce process.

Two men – different in age, ethnicity, and personality – face parallel struggles when it comes to making their marriages work.

Told through funny and poignant monologues, Aiden and Imran share intertwining stories that confront an uncomfortable question: when is it worth untying the knot?

-------

Based on the lived experiences of the actors themselves, ‘The Knot’ is an incredibly intimate, personal and timely show that addresses themes of masculinity, culture clash and how the government can become too involved in our romantic lives.

THE KNOT IS PERFORMED BY CAOLÁN DUNDON & AIYAZ AHMED, AND IS WRITTEN/DIRECTED BY DAN DANIEL.

The show is transferring from its successful run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, where it enjoyed a great audience and critical reception.

Reviews

★★★★ "Dan Daniel’s script is funny but with a sensitive rather than bitter humour ... The production is well considered and professionally delivered" – West End Wilma
