Jul 21, 2018, 11:44 AM

Rabiah Hussain’s stunning debut play ‘Spun’ recently opened in London to much public and critical acclaim. Rabiah explains why she wrote a play focusing on two girls and their friendship rather than their relationships with men. She discusses her creative process and the ups and downs of ‘vomit drafting’!

Rabiah also talks to Corinna about being a ‘South Asian woman from a working class background’ and how going to the theatre wasn’t part of her childhood.

Spun is playing at the Arcola Theatre until July 28 2018.
