Does My Bomb Look Big in This? Tickets

London Play
Tamasha and Nyla Levy present the thought-provoking new play, Does My Bomb Look Big in This?
Yasmin Sheikh feels torn in the city she used to call home, but Aisha sees a different London to her best friend. When Yasmin suddenly disappears to Syria, Aisha embarks on a mission to uncover the truth and decide whether there is any hope in Yasmin’s new-found world. With fierce wit and disarming honesty, Does My Bomb Look Big in This? cleverly unveils a human story behind the headlines and questions how close or far we are from multicultural harmony. First conceived in 2016 after being cast in roles as a ‘jihadi bride’ or ‘terrorist girlfriend’ and generally dissatisfied with the narrative being told, Nyla Levy ran research workshops with school children and interviewed Muslim community leaders as well as terrorism defence solicitor Tasnime Akunjee. The result voices the complexities of the choices made by disaffected youth, their vulnerability, and how the decisions made can changes lives, communities and countries forever.

    Excellent play. Funny and poignant. Actors are excellent.

    A well performed show played by such inspiring actresses. Humour was in abundance but the show still managed to get across the seriousness of how these young teenagers could be manipulated. Only issue was that the room itself was very warm...

    Powerful story about what it feels like to be young, British and Asian today. Skilled performances, and a cheeky self-aware script.
