Good Muslim Boy @ Malthouse

First and foremost, anyone who can rock a Ken Done knit but still look fit AF deserves to be King/Kween of Moomba. Osamah Sami aka Mad Thread Bae wrote this book-turned-play about the time he went on hols to Iran with his dad who died while they were there. It’s raw, gripping, tragic and frustrating, but it’s not all tears – fave scene saw Thread Bae being dragged into the dunny with a hunny at Revolver, which surprisingly, I’ve never seen on stage before (only IRL).
Bae proves himself a triple threat by keeping it together onstage, as he relives losing a parent infront of an audience of strangers, night after night… but also manages to tease out laughs like an 80s perm.
GMB was moving, the performance a slam dunk, the Revolver scene, Oscar-worthy. I give it 5 knits.
