Summary

We’re opposites, even though we came from the same, she’s nuttin like me, an that shames me.

Teenagers Muna and Iqra catch the same school bus. They were both born in Somalia but their backgrounds are very different. What they share is a painful secret. Tracking the urgent issue of FGM in Britain, this devastating play reveals the price some girls pay to become women.

Cuttin’ It premieres at the Young Vic, London, in May 2016.

Charlene James is the winner of the George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright and the Alfred Fagon Award for Best New Play.

70 of the finest minutes of drama 2016 is likely to offer.

Evening Standard
Critic Reviews

Gripping, heartfelt and heartbreaking... The writing is always sharp and increasingly fierce and urgent.

Guardian
Critic Reviews

Charlene James writes with great power and sensitivity... without either demonising the perpetrators.

Independent
Critic Reviews

It's a piece that grows increasingly insistent, and James balances tenderness with directness... this superbly written play shakes the scales from your eyes.

What's on Stage
Critic Reviews

A violently powerful 70-minute play... Full of unforgettable images... We sense the white hot, lightning flash of pain.

Daily Telegraph
Critic Reviews

[An] urgent, authentic new play... what’s so exciting about this piece is its lean, taut narrative.
