Ahead of opening night this Friday (14 Oct), cast members from Birmingham Rep’s upcoming production of Tartuffe headed out to Sparkhill’s famous Stratford Road, where this new version of the classic comedy is set.

He is joined by Salman Akhtar as Damee Pervaiz, Siddiqua Akhtar as Dadimaa Pervaiz, Anshula Bain as Mariam Pervaiz, Natalia Campbell as Amira, Olga Fedori as Darina, Qasim Mahmood as Waqaas, Simon Nagra as Imran, Riad Richie as Usman, Paige Round as DCI Sarah Wells and Pippa, and Roderick Smith as Khalil.
