Human wrongs

The continued threat of terrorism across the UK, combined with a heightened awareness of honour killings, form the basis for a play that attempts to question the beliefs that cause some Islamic women to be denied what most would consider basic human rights. Here the stories of a young white English girl and a similar Middle Eastern Muslim are juxtaposed, eventually becoming intertwined. Superficial, and lacking subtlety, this clunky multimedia piece descends into confusion and completely fails to satisfy. (David Laing)

A play that attempts to question the beliefs that cause some Islamic women to be denied what most consider basic human rights. Superficial and clunky multimedia piece, entirely lacking in subtlety. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
