The mark of a great revival is that compelling combination of recapturing the past and commenting on the present. Ayub Khan Din’s distinctive comedy/drama, which impressed on its searing 1996 debut and subsequent 1999 award-winning film adaptation, is reborn in Sam Yates’s vibrant Trafalgar Studios production, now on a brief tour, although a quirk of casting means its menace has been neutered – and the writer has no one to blame but himself.
