A Fifth Word and Nottingham Playhouse Production, in association with Brixton House
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, TikToks, lyrics and 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.
Liberation Squares is 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?
