Leila is happy living at home with Noor, her loving but traditional grandmother. When Aleena, her fiercely independent mother, returns home from prison determined to deliver a new world of fun and excitement, their calm lives are upended in a blur of nail varnish and sweet treats. Family secrets come tumbling into the light, and Leila finds deciding on her future more difficult than she first thought.

Writer of Diary of a Hounslow Girl Ambreen Razia’s remarkable new play, tells a strikingly frank story of a working-class Muslim family in a way you’ve never seen before on stage.
