Chunkyz Shisha Lounge is a home away from home for Jihad, Rashid and Asif, a space where community whispers are heard. But its future is under threat when it beomes a target for local politicians.

“Shisha lounges are an essential part of the Muslim experience bruv, like the Fillet o Fish” 

Aspiring journalist, Jihad wants to fight back. After winning a competition to produce his own documentary, he sets out to create something that gives a voice to his community and challenges the usual stereotypes that fill the airwaves. 

Will Jihad be able to create something that makes his boys proud? Or will his dreams of becoming a journalist come at a cost too high to bear? 

“A good journalist doesn’t always play friendly. In fact, they mostly don’t”

Mohamed-Zain Dada’s debut play, Blue Mist is a story about South Asian Muslim Men navigating a system that isn’t built for them. Directed by Royal Court Associate Director, Milli Bhatia.
