Cuttin' It, Crucible Studio
Sheffield sees the stage premiÃ¨re of Charlene James' devastating new play next week.
The play highlights the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the UK.
Iqra (Tsion Habte) and Muna (Adelayo Adedayo) both live in the UK.
They’re 15 years old, go to the same school and were both born in Somalia but they seem to come from different worlds.
Muna wears Top Shop and sits on the top deck of the bus, gossiping about Nicki Minaj’s latest beef, while Iqra sits alone downstairs in her charity shop hand-me-downs.
