Norm & Ahmed is a midnight conversation between a Pakistani student and a cliche-familiar Australian workman; and what emerges not only confronts us with how little Norm and his fellow Australians understand about Asians but with how close Australia is to its near north. Both Norm and Ahmed, says Buzo perceptively, are aliens in the same country.

Norm and Ahmed was first produced in Malaysia by The Actors Studio in 1989, our very first production. It was directed by Joe Hasham and executive-produced by Faridah Merican. Norm was played by Joe Hasham and Ahmed was played by Mustafa Noor.

This 2019 production is part of The Actors Studio’s 30th anniversary. It will again be directed by Joe hasham and executive-produced by Faridah Merican. Norm will be played by Australian actor, Kingsley Judd and Ahmed will be played by Phraveen Arikiah.

In keeping with the theme of Norm and Ahmed which is racism, the evening will begin with a selection of poetry and song.
