40 Days

By Firdos Ali

On the morning following the Brexit vote, a British Black Muslim boy goes upstairs after seeing the results on TV, lies down on his bed, and never gets up again.

Firdos Ali's 40 Days is an unperformed play exploring the impact of state violence on Black and brown children. It examines the difficulties facing Black Muslim parents as they wrestle with how to protect their Black Muslim son, as well as preparing him for the hostile world they live in.

40 Days is available in the volume Contemporary Plays by Black British Writers.
