Join poet, playwright and writer Sabrina Mahfouz in a celebration of working class writers making it happen in the UK today.

Working class people continue to face exclusion from cultural spaces, even when they are actively making work – what can we do to tackle this?

In this thought-provoking evening of performance, readings and discussion celebrating the anthology Smashing It, Sabrina Mahfouz will be joined by brilliant working class writers and artists who every day subvert and break class stereotypes to find their own power.

Sabrina Mahfouz grew up between London and Cairo. She is a playwright, poet, screenwriter and performer who has recently been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and is the recipient of the 2018 King’s Alumni Arts & Culture Award for inspiring change in the industry. She has been shortlisted for the Arts Foundation Award for Performance Poetry and has won a Sky Arts Academy Award for Poetry, a Westminster Prize for New Playwrights and a Fringe First Award. Sabrina is also the editor of the anthology The Things I Would Tell You: British Muslim Women Write (Saqi Books, 2017).
