The Diary Of A Hounslow Girl

Design Statement

The Diary of a Hounslow Girl 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 growing up in and around London.

"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?"

From West london classrooms, via traditional Pakistani weddings to fights on the London night bus this one woman show takes it’s audience on a journey as emotional and spiritual as it’s colourful.

But real Hounslow is a grey & claustrophobic place.

A conceptual world was conceived, drawing inspiration from the suffocating surroundings of our heroine, that would serve the reality & grittiness of the writing while also visually underscoring the spiritual and internal journey she embarks upon while at all times staying true to the boldness and vibrancy of the performance.

A mind, a life and a world expands in unison with a little help from some pink round lanters, big dreams and botanical tattoos.
