‘Scorchingly intelligent and as powerful as a gut punch.’
★★★★ Times

Three girls. Best friends forever. All the big issues: love, sex and religion… But when they’re kidnapped from home, their world is turned upside down. The only hashtag that matters now is survival. A funny and fiercely passionate new play about enduring friendship, the power of imagination and the stories behind the headlines that quickly become yesterday’s news. Written by the Alfred Fagon and joint George Devine Award-winner Theresa Ikoko. Shortlisted for Soho Theatre’s Verity Bargate Award. Part of the British Council 2017 Showcase.
