Ambreen Razia is a writer and actor from South London. The Diary of a Hounslow Girl is her debut play. Ambreen recently featured in: Murdered by my Father (BBC Three) and No Guts, No Heart, No Glory (BBC 4 / Perth Festival Australia) and The Raz and Deep Show (The Wall of Comedy).
You’ve heard of an Essex Girl or even a Chelsea Girl and now there is a Hounslow Girl, geared up and ready to take on the world. The Diary of a Hounslow Girl is told through the eyes of a 16 year old British Muslim teenager growing up in West London.
From traditional Pakistani weddings to fights on the night bus this is a funny, bold, provocative play highlighting the challenges of being brought up as a young woman from a traditional Muslim family alongside the temptations and influences growing up in London.
First there was Bridget Jones Diary, then Legally Blonde, but now there is The Diary of a Hounslow Girl geared up to take on the world.
A comic story of dreams, aspirations and coming of age.
Originally commissioned by Ovalhouse, London.
