About Liberation Squares

Fifth Word and Nottingham Playhouse, in association with Brixton House present

Written by Sonali Bhattacharyya

Three teenage girls forge an unlikely friendship when they meet at a creative writing workshop at a hip new café/workspace which used to be their library. They challenge each other with ideas, Tik Toks, lyrics, dance routines. But when they discover the workshop is connected to the state surveillance ‘Prevent’ programme, they have to fight back. The only question is how? Friendships fracture and loyalties are tested as they pursue different avenues of resistance.

A story of sisterhood, freedom of speech and creative expression, in an era when dissent is being criminalised and the state follows your every move, online and offline. Why does being an outspoken Muslim girl have to be so damn hard?

Liberation Squares is about British Muslim schoolgirls, whose adolescence is as complex, infuriating and joyous as any other teenagers, but with the added complications of Islamophobia and cultural erasure. This funny, playful and deeply humane play puts young female agency centre stage; inspired by everything from graphic novels to real-world youth activists and organisers, it asks what it means for young Muslim women to become the heroes of their own stories.
