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 reveals the price some girls pay to become a woman.

‘I know what it meant to have a little sister. I knew what it meant for her.’

A new play about FGM in Britain.

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