A  play about three British Muslim teenage girls who discover the real-life consequences of the world of social media activism is coming to Bolton’s Octagon Theatre

When two British Muslim teenagers are introduced to charismatic social media activist Xara, who challenges them to speak up, the three girls undergo a political awakening when they realise what you say, and even what you think, is viewed very differently depending on who you are. Friendships fracture and loyalties are tested as the three pursue different avenues of resistance to scrutiny and surveillance.

This new play reunites writer Sonali Bhattacharyya with director Milli Bhatia after their Chasing Hares at the Young Vic, which won the Sonia Friedman Production Award and Theatre Uncut Political Playwriting Award. Milli is also known for the Olivier Award nominated seven methods of killing kylie jenner.

The show premiered at Nottingham Playhouse last month and will be at Octagon Theatre, Bolton on June 8th
