Presented by Fatiha El-Ghorri & Toby Clarke

Fatiha and Toby have only met once after he saw her perform her standup routine in Luton in March 2019. They will only meet again in front of a live audience, where Toby will have just 60 minutes to pitch a play to Hackney-born Fatiha about her faith and her journey to becoming an unconventional comedian. Without offending her. 

Combining text, standup, puppetry, dance & music, Making Fatiha will challenge our understanding of truth onstage as well explore that fine thread between funny and offensive (in the context of faith and religion). 

But not yet… First Toby needs to convince Fatiha. And she might just Jihad his arse instead. 

“…But most Millennials are brilliant like the previous Generations B, X, Y & Z… and I’d prefer it if ALL media told more of that story once in a while…” Read Toby Clarke’s interview with Theatre Bubble on what to expect from Making Fatiha, how millennials are portrayed in the media and toasting CPT’s 25th anniversary here.
