This week’s round-up of Arts Exhibitions Events

Cuttin It
Young Vic | Until 11 June 2016

Tackling the urgent issue of FGM in Britain, Charlene James’ devastating new play reveals the price some girls pay to become a woman.

The story is told through the eyes of two teenagers Muna and Iqra. They ride the same bus to school but they’ve never really spoken. Muna wears Topshop and sits on the top deck gossiping about pop culture. Iqra sits alone, downstairs in her charity shop hand-me-downs.

They were both born in Somalia but come from different worlds. But as they get closer, they realise that their families share a painful secret.

Doors 14:45 & 19:45
