The end of an era is approaching. It’s 1997 and London is about to have its last daytime rave.

British South Asians flock for their last taste of rebellion. Among them are cousins Farhan and Sadiq. Both very different. Both escaping something. Both trying to decide what it means to be British and Pakistani, a Muslim and a man – and they’ve got until 6pm to figure it out.

Inspired by the daytime raves of 1990s British Asian culture, Daytime Deewane explores the beauty and struggle of living with a multi-cultural identity as a teenager. Featuring a DJ mix merging soundscapes, dance music and spoken word, this immersive new show is an exhilarating gig theatre adventure.

Daytime Deewane, by Azan Ahmed, is Half Moon’s latest touring production for teenagers. Our last two shows for this age group, Crowded and What Once Was Ours), both won the Off West End Theatre Award for Best Production for Young People Age 13+

After the performance there is an onstage Q&A session with the company.

CONTENT WARNING: Daytime Deewane includes references to self-harm. As part of depicting the experience of British South Asians in the 1990s, at times characters in the play refer to language which is racially offensive.
