Faber and Faber
Type: Text

Teenagers Muna and Iqra catch the same school bus. They were both born in Somalia but their backgrounds are very different. What they share is a painful secret. Tracking the urgent issue of FGM in Britain, this devastating play reveals the price some girls pay to become women.

Cuttin' It premieres at the Young Vic, London, in May 2016.

Charlene James won the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright and the Alfred Fagon Award for Best New Play for Cuttin' It.
