The Big Sick

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Join us for an original, hilarious and award-winning rom-com, in partnership with Croydon Comedy Festival.

As Pakistan-born comedian Kumail and grad student Emily begin fall in love, their relationship is put to the test when cultures begin to clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness and is put into an induced coma, Kumail finds himself forced to face her parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.

Edgy and side-splitting, The Big Sick is a story of cross-cultural love that revitalizes the rom-com genre.
