Riotously funny play ‘Liberation Squares’ takes on Prevent surveillance

liberation squares
Liberation Squares, a play about three young women who undergo a political awakening when they find themselves the target of Prevent will start a three-month run across the UK, beginning April 12.
Written by Sonali Bhattacharyya and directed by Milli Bhatia, Liberation Squares is a riotously funny play told through the technicolour lens of three British Muslim schoolgirls, whose unlikely friendship is tested as they pursue different types of resistance to Prevent surveillance.
Inspired by graphic novels, hip hop, pop culture and real-world youth activists, Liberation Squares asks what it takes for young Muslim women today to be the heroes of their own stories.
“Seamlessly yokes the personal to the political in sparkling dialogue,” writes the Telegraph, while the Guardian states that the production “plays out like a thriller”.
Curtains open at the Nottingham Playhouse on 12 April. ‘Liberation Squares’ is in London at Brixton House Theatre between 2-11 May, as well as other venues nationwide. Don’t miss it!
