No-one complains about positive stereotypes either, I've noticed - but surely they should if they want to delete stereotypes from the world?
Anyway, the structure of this play works, and it covers sensitive issues well. Some nationalities work better than others, and some is very stagey - as befits a theatre play from a theatre writer.
At least this writer has the guts to take on a difficult and controversial subject without the usual 'celebrating diversity' spiel or waffling about how immigration always enriches everything always forever and has no negative effects. We need more writers to take up the mantle here and write plays that don't just spout the usual left-wing politically correct' trite arguments - attacking the white British who are against too much immigration, attacking the Tories, being against the Iraq war etc... Ironic really, because all those leftwing millionaire comedians now pay much less tax and are far richer because of the Thatcher-led tax cuts for the richest...
The jokes are brilliant and some of the history as to why cultures have certain traditions is very illuminating.
If your mettle is being tested by immigrants read this book.
