A Kind of People


Catch renowned playwright, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti’s all-new production, A Kind of People, as it is set to take the Off West End stage by storm! Delve into the lives of people who reside in a contemporary British community, and must fight against the odds to achieve their dreams!

Why Watch A Kind Of People

Multiple award-winning playwright and writer Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti’s new play is all set to debut at London’s West End. Bhatti comes from a Sikh British family, and most of her plays are strongly based on her Sikh roots. Her 2004 play Behzti won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and went on to be translated to French, and had sell-out runs across Belgium and France. A follow-up play to Behzti, titled Behud was produced in 2010 and was shortlisted for the John Whiting Award. Her previous production at the Royal Court Theatre, titled Khandan, won critical acclaim and was praised for its honest portrayal of an average Sikh family living in Britain and the numerous problems that they faced.

Bhatti primarily focuses on family and cultural values and explores these themes through her insightful and often humorous productions. She often confronts home truths in her suburban set dramas and showcases the good and bad side of strong family ties and cultural values. There is a chance to meet Bhatti following a performance of the play on the 7th of January, 2020. A Kind of People is all set to shatter records at the Royal Court Theatre and promises to be a crowd favourite!

The Story

It is Friday night in the city, and time to unwind for the weekend. Someone is holding a party, and it seems to be all fun and games. However, somewhere in the city, someone does not seem to be having a good time. Gary and Nicky have been together since high school. Gary has finally got a promotion, one that promises to change their lives forever. He will be able to move his family out of the council housing and also give Nicky everything he had always wanted.

Elsewhere, Anjum and Mo have set very high expectations for themselves and will stop at nothing to reach their goals. Gary’s sister Karen is not particularly bothered about fighting for her dreams, but would rather live life to the fullest. Mark, on the other hand, is aimless and unsure of what the future holds for him. He just manages to get through most days. Victoria, on the other hand, is free-spirited and just wants to find someone to dance with. Will this group of intriguing characters achieve what they dream of, especially when the odds are stacked against them?
