Tackling the urgent issue of FGM in Britain, Charlene James’ devastating new play reveals the price some girls pay to become a woman. Read More >

‘We’re opposites, even though we came from the same, she’s nuttin like me, an that shames me.’

Teenagers Muna and Iqra get the same bus to school but they’ve never really spoken.  Muna wears TopShop and sits on the top deck gossiping about Nicki Minaj’s latest beef, while Iqra sits alone downstairs in her charity shop hand-me-downs. 

They were both born in Somalia but come from different worlds. But as they get closer, they realise that their families share a painful secret.

Tackling the urgent issue of FGM in Britain, Charlene James’ devastating new play Cuttin’ It reveals the price some girls pay to become a woman. 

Winner of the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright and the Alfred Fagon Award for Best New Play.
