The Buddha of Suburbia in London

The RSC's and Wise Children's 'intoxicating five-star' (The Times) production of the award-winning 1990 novel transfers to London's Barbican Theatre. Expect a vibrant and incisive coming-of-age story from The Buddha of Suburbia for four weeks this Autumn.

The Buddha of Suburbia - The Story

The Buddha of Suburbia follows Karim, a mixed-race teenager in 1970s London, as he navigates the complexities of his identity and aspirations. As Karim explores his burgeoning sexuality and ambitions in the arts and as his father Haroon becomes a self-styled guru, he encounters a diverse array of characters and experiences that challenge and shape him. The Buddha of Suburbia poignantly captures Karim's struggle to find his place amidst the cultural and social upheaval of the time.
