Making Fatiha
Hat Factory Arts Centre, Bute Street, Luton, UK

19:30 to 20:30 Sat Feb 8th

Fatiha and Toby have only met once after he saw her perform her standup routine in Luton in March 2019. They will only meet again in front of a live audience, where Toby will have just 60 minutes to pitch a play to Hackney-born Fatiha about her faith and her journey to becoming an unconventional comedian. Without offending her.

Combining text, standup, puppetry, dance & music, Making Fatiha will challenge our understanding of truth onstage as well as explore that fine thread between funny and offensive (in the context of faith and religion).

But not yet… First Toby needs to convince Fatiha. And she might just Jihad his arse instead.

Join us on the Friday for a Q&A, with Shemiza Rashid, as she delves into a conversation with Fatiha & Toby about their piece. On Saturday come along and support Luton’s Young people, as they perform a selection of their own original writing that they’ve been working on this year.

Please note: the total running time for the Friday performance is an 1 hour 45 minutes, and the total running time for the Saturday performance is 1 hour 15 minutes.
