Register your interest here to receive updates."Spun is a consummation of creative talent, emotional work, skilled execution, and nuanced perspective." - Montreal Theatre Hub“A powerful tale of female friendship and an intimate look at navigating race, religion and class in modern day Britain […] pure brilliance.” - TheatreBubble (UK)Spun is the story of Safa and Aisha, best friends from working-class British Pakistani families in Newham, London. They have just graduated from university and, for the first time, their lives are headed in different directions. Safa goes to work at a large marketing firm in Central London while Aisha remains in Newham to become a teacher, but both promise to meet every Thursday. When the 7/7 London bombing occurs, Safa and Aisha suddenly find themselves on the receiving end of questions and suspicions. Safa reacts by distancing herself from her Muslim roots, while Aisha embraces her identity in order to defend her community. Cracks in their friendship begin to appear as the debates of the outside world seep into their personal lives. Is their longstanding bond strong enough to endure the powerful socio-political forces reshaping the world?Written by Rabiah HussainDirected by Mercedeh BaroqueCreative Consulting by Deborah FordeStarring Amena Ahmad and Sundance NagrialCreative TeamLighting Design: Timothy RodriguesSound Design: Rehan LalaniCostume Design: Swati KhannaSet Design & Technical Director: Micheal TonusStage Manager: Nikita BalaProduction Manager: Shayne Lovsin
