    1. There was controversy surrounding this play because the humor sometimes does rely on racist stereotypes, but I think it's an incredibly shallow reading of this complex play to reduce its humor or its message to those racist stereotypes. For me, there are three major thematic elements that are really important here. First, that Britain has spent generations panicking over the inflow of immigrants, who then become integrated and assimilated members of a British cultural identity which becomes incr [...]
