Details

Freedom Studios present two new, 30-minute plays celebrating the stories and cultures of Bradford.
No. 4 by Asma Elbadawi – Fatima and Sarah are best friends, playing together on their college basketball team, but the arrival of new girl Wafa from Sudan stirs up secrets and makes new rivalries.
Pashto Thriller by Aina Khan – It’s 1980s Bradford, and Hawa Jaan is struggling with having to wear a sari to school, and her secret love of Michael Jackson’s music. When Bibi comes to visit from Pakistan, grandmother and granddaughter find more in common than they thought.
Asma Elbadawi is a British Sudanese poet, basketball player and a global Adidas Brand Ambassador. Her dual cultural heritage deeply influences her creativity, paired with international development and female empowerment.
Aina J Khan is a writer and journalist who has been published in The Guardian, Al Jazeera English, VOGUE Arabia, Financial Times, and VICE Munchies. Raised in west London, she moved to west Bradford at fifteen, and has been straddling the north and south ever since.
Supported by Amal (a Sai¨d Foundation programme).
