The Thelmas & Ovalhouse: Coconut

The Thelmas & Ovalhouse: Coconut

Rumi is a British Pakistani woman who’s referred to as a ‘Coconut’ (brown on the outside, white on the inside) by the rest of the community.

Born and brought up as a Muslim, Rumi spends more time enjoying fine wine and bacon than being at the mosque. When she meets Simon, a white guy, she hopes that his decision to convert to Islam will be enough to keep everyone happy.

However, as Simon begins to explore his faith, Rumi’s world spins off its axis in ways she could never have predicted.

How far will she go to preserve the identity she has carved out for herself?
