Respect women, respect girls. Respect yourselves. Remember you are everyone who's gone before you and you are nobody that has ever been, so make it count, make it special, make a difference, make people listen, love the women who have loved you and watch us make the world move to a better place. For Layla, every day is a battleground. The pay gap, the thigh gap, over-sexed pop and selfies that are photoshopped – they're just part of the world she lives in. But that world is about to change. While breaking out of her bedroom – and with drama, comedy, poetry and music as her weapons – Layla breaks down and makes sense of the realities, difficulties and absurdities of teenage life in the UK today. Collected from a bespoke national survey, the voices of a thousand UK teens are brought to life in Layla. Their ambitions, concerns, role-models and regrets are woven together by award-winning Sabrina Mahfouz and theatre company Theatre Centre, offering a hard-hitting, yet hopeful, story. Layla's Room received its world premiere at Redbridge Drama Centre on 15 September 2016 in a production by Theatre Centre. It is ideal for students and young performers between 16 and 18 years old.

ISBN: STANFORD:36105114282465
Available:
Release: 2005
Editor: Red Sea Press(NJ)
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This is a fascinating story of the Egyptian revolution and the rise of Nassar, the formation of the state of Israel and the Israeli-Palistenian conflict, seen through the life and mind of a young Egyptian Coptic woman, starting with the riveting narrative of her childhood in the world of the Coptic community of Cairo. We are witness to its customs, stories, food, music, religious rites, its mysteries; the desire of its women, and indeed, of the Egyptian woman, for emancipation, and their form of feminism. Assaad's novel is neither didactic nor tendentious; rather, in reading it, we may develop some understanding of daily life, and the politics of the Middle East as seen through Arab eyes, both Moslem and Coptic. Although originally published twenty-eight years ago, it remains a novel with distinct current relevance, and it has had success through both its Hebrew and Arab translations.

Explanation of the Book:

Layla Bali is an eleven year-old girl who sees things that others don’t. She knows that there are unexplained dangers in this world. When Layla’s dog, Molly, goes missing, Layla’s search for her leads her into strange new lands. Layla awakens to a noise in the middle of the night and meets Jasmine, a black cat from the land of Baismal. Layla can speak to Jasmine, and the two are transported to Baismal through a staircase of fire. Malkolm, the evil ruler of Baismal, kidnapped Molly. He wants revenge for the death of his family, but he does not know his family’s true fate. Layla and Jasmine must save Molly and end Malkolm’s reign of terror. When Layla accidentally transforms Jasmine from a housecat into a great black panther, she discovers that her words have magical power. Jasmine and Layla meet friends and enemies in their search for Molly, but many of the people Layla meets look like people she knew at home in the Middle Land. Even Kaleb, an attractive boy her age, looks very much like the boy she likes back home. Kaleb accompanies Layla and Jasmine as they continue their journey. In the dungeon of Malkolm’s castle, Layla, Jasmine, and Kaleb confront Malkolm and rescue many kidnapped animals—including Molly. They escape into the land of Atticalli, ruled by the good and powerful Lord Gani. Layla learns that the three lands are connected, and there may be a link between the people she met in Baismal and her friends back home. She herself is the reincarnation of Princess Lelanie—Lord Gani’s best friend. Malkolm tracks Layla to Atticalli where he attacks her and her friends. Lord Gani saves them, and Malkolm is defeated, but Malkolm still has a doppelgänger somewhere in the Middle Land. Until his doppelgänger is found, Malkolm may return to power. Lord Gani returns Layla and Molly to the Middle Land to search for Malkolm’s doppelgänger. Layla awakens in her bed with Molly safely home. Visiting her friends, she realizes that something isn’t right, and she needs to figure out the truth about the people around her and the dream she has just had.
