The Knot, which transfers to London’s Old Red Lion Theatre next month, is an intimate, personal and timely show that addresses themes of masculinity, culture clash and how the government can become too involved in our romantic lives.
Told through funny and poignant monologues, Aiden and Imran share intertwining stories that confront an uncomfortable question: when is it worth untying the knot?
The Knot, transferring from a successful run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, is based on the experiences of the actors themselves.
Aiden is trying to bring his Argentinian fiancé to the UK, but their relationship is cracking under the weight of bureaucracy.
After 20 years of marriage, Imran has just discovered his wife cheating and now has to endure a lengthy divorce process.
Two men – different in age, ethnicity, and personality – face parallel struggles when it comes to making their marriages work.
The Knot is performed by Caolán Dundon and Aiyaz Ahmed, and is written and directed by Dan Daniel.
Dan Daniel is an award-winning London-based director, writer and producer for both theatre and film.
Caolán Dundon is an actor from Kildare, Ireland. He has appeared in All About Eva (2014), Savage (2013), and Promise (2013). Aiyaz Ahmed has starred in over 63 film and theatre productions.
The Knot runs at the Old Red Lion Theatre from June 18 – July 6.
