Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.

Based on Suhaiymah’s musings and experiences, LOL, inshaAllah, is an insight into the anger, despair, and yet also optimism and joviality that comes with being a young Muslim in Britain today.

The performance invites you to deconstruct the lazy binaries we apply to each other – radical/moderate, extreme/liberal, oppressed/liberated – and to explore the potential of our full humanity.

Where I’m from, hardly anyone is exposed to the arts. There’s a load of talent but no guidance. Roundhouse changed my life.
