The Girl/The Woman

Date: 18 May 2018

Twelve years in the making and semi-autobiographical, Aanisa Vylet’s The Girl and its companion piece The Woman follows two generations of Australian Arab-Muslim women.

They play together for the first time at Riverside Theatres from June 28.

“In the creation of this work I’ve had to face up to the role I’ve given myself as a female writer and as an Arab-Muslim woman growing up in Western Sydney making her own choices,” Vylet explains. “I’ve been working on this for about 12 years now, which is a long time, but I needed that time to listen to myself and keep digging deeper and deeper.”
