ASIAN VOICES: ATIHA SEN GUPTA
The young playwright talks to Suman Bhuchar about What Fatima Did… (Hampstead), her debut play about a 17-year-old Muslim who decides to start wearing the hijab, raising issues of identity and freedom. Expletives not deleted.
I’m always interested in women, not just the hijabis, and how women dress – ideas of control, identity and freedom.
