Spun is the exhilarating debut play from Rabiah Hussain. Seen through the eyes of two British Pakistani Muslim girls from East London (played by British Pakistani actors Aasiya Shehlef and Humaira Iqbal), this funny and moving drama unravels the makings of a friendship, microaggressions in the city, and the challenge of keeping rooted through unstable times.

"A fresh and accomplished debut play about friendship that bubbles with original humour" - The Stage

"Rabiah Hussain's script showcases an utterly distinctive voice: playful yet profound, rooted, class-conscious and effortlessly poetic" - Guardian

Spun is on from 27 June - 28 July 2018 at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston, London.
