Rehearsal trailer for What Fatima Did released
Have you ever made a decision that everyone seemed to have an opinion on? That’s What Fatima Did...
Meet the cast of this funny and thought-provoking play in rehearsals ahead of its limited run at Derby Theatre next week.
Fatima Merchant is feisty and strong-willed. At 17, she drinks, smokes and parties. On the eve of her 18th birthday, without word or warning, she adopts the hijab. Suddenly, to her friends and family she is no longer the Fatima they thought they knew... And they all have something to say about it!
Exploring attitudes to freedom and identity in contemporary Britain, What Fatima Did... plays from Wednesday 27 February - Saturday 2 March.
Written by Atiha Sen Gupta, the writer of Derby Theatre's critically-acclaimed production Abi. In association with Tamasha Theatre.
