It’s 1997 and London is about to have its last daytime rave.
The end of an era is approaching. British South Asians flock for their last taste of rebellion. Among them are cousins Farhan and Sadiq. Both very different. Both escaping something. Both trying to decide what it means to be British and Pakistani, to be Muslim and a man – and they’ve got until 6pm to figure it out.
Inspired by the daytime raves of 1990s British Asian culture, Daytime Deewane explores the beauty and struggle of living with a multi-cultural identity as a teenager. Featuring a DJ mix merging soundscapes, dance music and spoken word, this immersive new show is an exhilarating gig theatre adventure.
Daytime Deewane, by Azan Ahmed, is the latest production from Half Moon, the UK’s leading small-scale young people’s venue and touring company, winner of the 2019 and 2018 Offies Award (Off West End Theatre) for Best Production for Young People Age 13+ (Crowded and What Once Was Ours).

Join The HandleBards at Norden Farm for a bicycle-powered, laugh-out-loud production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
This is a spine-tingling evening of three tales of the supernatural from E F Benson’s brilliant collection of ghost stories, Night Terrors.
With masterful storytelling from the award winning actor Gerard Logan, Night Terrors will transport you to a darker, more sinister world of the unexpected and the unexplainable.
The three stories (The Dance, In The Tube and The Confession of Charles Linkworth), are dramatic, haunting and hugely memorable.
