WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A play about two young British Muslim best friends, exploring identity, prejudice, racism and radicalisation. Aisha and Yasmin are joined at the hip BFFs (Best Friends Forever) from Souf Weezy (South West London). Reeling from Brexit, Trump and daily terror talk, they're left trying to make sense of the Britain they live in today. Yasmin wants to reject the city she used to call home, before it completely cuts her, but Aisha doesn't see it that way. Aisha loves how passionate Yasmin is, but also knows how susceptible to phases she can be. But when Yasmin suddenly disappears into the arms of ISIS, Aisha must decide whether there is any truth or hope in Yasmin's new found world. Does My Bomb Look Big in This? exposes the fragmented nature of our society and how far from multicultural bliss we now lie.
