Synopsis


"I just thought it would be a secret I'd have to die with.


And now - I think it'll be what kills me."


Life as the director of a Muslim funeral parlour isn't always easy, but Ayesha has things pretty sorted.


She and Zeyd share everything: a marriage, a business, a future.


Until Tom walks in to organise his boyfriend's funeral.


A snap moral decision, informed by the values of Ayesha's community and faith, has profound consequences.


Forced to confront a secret she has hidden even from herself, Ayesha must decide who she is - no matter the cost.


Chosen from 1,384 entries to the 2018 Papatango New Writing Prize, The Funeral Director is an incisive and heartfelt story of sexuality, gender and religion in 21st-century Britain.
