The Diary of a Hounslow Girl
Told through the eyes of a 16-year-old British Muslim girl growing up in west London, this funny, bold, provocative play highlights the challenges of being brought up as a young woman in a traditional Muslim family alongside the temptations and influences of London.
You've heard of an Essex girl but what is a Hounslow girl? This term has become a byword for young Muslim women who wear hooped earrings along with their headscarves, tussling with their traditional families while hustling their way in urban west London.
