HighTide, Soho Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company present the world premiere of Girls.

“Why waste money printing flyers if you’re just going to shoot everyone anyway?’

Tisana, Ruhab and Haleema are normal girls. But they are captive in a world of smoke, dust and gunfire. Their hometown destroyed, their families missing and their childhood friends killed, these three girls have been kidnapped by Boko Haram.

Girls explores the voices and stories behind the trending hashtags and headlines that so quickly become yesterday’s news. This is a story of an enduring friendship, of love, strength and girlhood.


Running Time: 1hr 30m no interval.
