"This is Rabiah Hussain’s first full-length play and her script showcases an utterly distinctive voice: playful yet profound, rooted, class-conscious and effortlessly poetic."
**** The Guardian
"[Rabiah's] writing is fresh and thrilling, pulling a wonderful lyricism out of the rhythms of London slang. Her characters...are refreshingly original.
An accomplished, refreshing debut."
**** The Stage
"Hussain writes stingingly of what it’s like to be working-class as well as Asian.
A spellbinding, assured debut." HIDDEN GEM FringeReview
"Spun adds to the emerging call for more working-class voices in theatre, revealing the experiences of Londoners we see every day in town but all too rarely on stage."
The Reviews Hub
"Spun offers an original – and often very funny – perspective on white, middle-class British society's attitudes to minority ethnic communities."
What's on Stage
"Spun...reminded me of the power of words in that they have the potential to elevate us to our best self, through compassion and empathy, but they can also be used to break communities apart and dehumanize individuals. This show is a must-see."
