The Diary of a Hounslow Girl
First there was Bridget Jones Diary, then Legally Blonde, and now there is The Diary of a Hounslow Girl, geared up to take on the world. A comic story of dreams, aspirations and coming of age.
The Diary of a Hounslow Girl is told through the eyes of a 16-year-old British Muslim girl growing up in West London. From traditional Pakistani weddings to fights on the night bus this is a funny, bold, provocative play highlighting the challenges of being brought up as a young woman in a traditional Muslim family alongside the temptations and influences growing up in and around London.
You've heard of an Essex Girl or even a Chelsea Girl but what is a Hounslow Girl? A Hounslow Girl has become a byword for young Muslim women who wear hooped earrings along with their headscarves, tussling with their traditional families while hustling their way in urban West London. Confident young women grappling with traditional values, city life and fashion.
