Vinay Patel's recent BBC drama Murdered by My Father was one of the smash-hits of 2016.
Having broken onto the scene with the critically acclaimed True Brits, An Adventure will be his biggest and boldest play yet.
A drama of unprecedented scope and heart, spanning seven decades and three continents, inspired by the experiences of his immigrant grandparents.
Witty, charming and full of fearless historical insight, An Adventure is an epic, technicolour love story from one of the country's most promising young writers about the people who journeyed to our shores in hope and shaped the country we live in today.
This world premiere will be directed by Bush Artistic Director, Madani Younis (The Royale) and Associate Director Omar Elerian.
A borrowed suit. A half-remembered film. A life of homecomings.
"I'm not much now, I know, but I will be.
So pick me Jyoti and I swear I will make us the greatest adventure you ever have."
On a stormy night in 1954, a woman doomed to marry one of five men discovers the wildcard choice might just be the person she'd been hoping for all along.
An Adventure follows headstrong Jyoti and her fumbling suitor Rasik as they ride the crest of the fall of Empire from the shores of post-Partition India to the forests of Mau Mau Kenya onto the industrial upheaval of 1970s London.
But what happens when youthful ambitions crash hard against reality?
When you look back at the story of your time together, can you bear to ask yourself: Was it all worth it?
