You've heard of an Essex Girl or even a Chelsea Girl but what is a Hounslow Girl?
From traditional Pakistani weddings to fights on the night bus The Diary of a Hounslow Girl is told through the eyes of a hooped earring, headscarf wearing 16 year old British Muslim Girl growing up in West London. 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.
First there was Bridget Jones Diary, then Legally Blonde, and now there is The Diary of a Hounslow Girl, geared up to take on the world. A comic story of dreams, aspirations and coming of age.
Ambreen Razia is a writer and actor from South London. The Diary of a Hounslow Girl is her debut play. Ambreen recently featured in: Murdered By My Father (BBC Three) and No Guts, No Heart, No Glory (BBC 4 / Perth Festival Australia).
