‘Uncle Abdul Azeez said that Allah talks about a path. But we don’t know what shape it is? Or whether there’s a cross road in it? Or a Ditch at the end of it? Who said it was straight.’

‘The Diary of a Hounslow Girl’ is told through the eyes of a 16-year-old British Muslim Girl growing up in West London. From traditional Pakistani weddings to fights on the night bus, this is a funny, bold, provocative play highlighting the challenges of being brought up as a young woman in a traditional Muslim family, alongside the temptations and influences that come with growing up in and around the capital.
