"An absolute celebration of diversity and a truly special piece of theatre"
North West End

Summer 1978, Simon and his friends should be looking forward to leaving school, but the National Front are on the streets, Simon's Bibi is ashamed of him and his Dad spends his life hiding in the pub.

When Simon's cousin Baljit comes to stay, she introduces him to the Bollywood classic, Sholay. Inspired by the film’s dynamic duo, Jai and Veeru, Simon and Baljit find their inner superheroes and set out to change their world forever. 

From the producers of Miss Meena & the Masala Queens, The Deranged Marriage and Britain’s Got Bhangra, Rifco Theatre Company and Watford Palace Theatre with Oldham Coliseum Theatre present a new play about friendship and courage.

"Like a speeding bullet, Rifco Theatre with this hugely enjoyable and touching production continues to hit the mark."
