Ambreen Razia: POT
This edgy young playwright returns with a story about young lives teetering on the verge
“This block is the devil’s playground… He follows the beaten and the weak.”
Louisa wakes up on lock down surrounded by debris from last night’s blow out. Josh has vanished but she is not alone and she’s beginning to feel the heat.
From the writer of ‘The Diary of a Hounslow Girl’, Ambreen Razia’s restless new thriller, POT, reveals the hidden lives of Britain’s invisible children, adrift in the care system at the mercy of gang culture.
Written by Ambreen Razia, Directed by Sophie Moniram
