Theatre Centre

Layla's Room

by Sabrina Mahfouz

'Mahfouz’s poetic script fizzes with energy' The Independent

For Layla, every day is a battleground. The pay gap, the thigh gap, over-sexed pop and selfies that are photoshopped – they’re just part of the world she lives in.

But Layla’s world is about to change.

While breaking out of her bedroom – and with drama, comedy, poetry and music as her weapons – Layla breaks down and makes sense of the realities, difficulties and absurdities of teenage life in the UK today.

Collected from a bespoke national survey, the voices of a thousand UK teens are brought to life in Layla. Their ambitions, concerns, role-models and regrets are woven together by award-winning Sabrina Mahfouz (★★★★★, Clean, The Independent) and Theatre Centre (★★★★★, Rise Up, The Morning Star) and offer a hard-hitting yet hopeful story of how girls just wanna have fun(damental human rights).
