About Approaching Empty

Forget friendship, this is business. In a scruffy minicab office, Mansha decides it’s time to create his own destiny and offers to buy the business from his lifelong friend Raf. As the realities of the state of the company slowly unravel, these two best friends must confront the difficulties of going into business with those closest to them.

Set in Northern England in the aftermath of Margaret Thatcher’s death, Approaching Empty is a razor-sharp new drama by award-winning playwright Ishy Din (Snookered, Best New Play at Manchester Theatre Awards), which lays bare the everyday struggles of a post-industrial generation of British men.

Tamasha is Britain’s leading touring theatre company producing new plays that put diverse artists centre-stage. During its 30 year history successes like East Is East, Snookered and My Name Is… have won acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Approaching Empty are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
