Why See Bullet Hole?
Gloria Williams' Unflinching Examination Of FGM
Shortlisted for the 2017 Alfred Fagon Audience Award, British-born Nigerian playwright Gloria Williams' powerful portrayal of the emotional consequences of female genital mutilation shines a light on the very real plight of women in the UK and the world over. Weaving together factual accounts of FGM victims and research into its physical and mental trauma, Bullet Hole is an unflinching drama about feminism, female sexuality, rape, human rights and mental health.
An all-black female cast tell the story of Cleo, a young woman living in London with Type 3 FGM, her Aunty Winnie, a proponent of the ritual whose faith and traditional upbringing is at odds with liberal Western society and Eve, a woman dealing with her own demons in the wake of FGM. When Cleo is raped by her husband, she makes up her mind to have reversal surgery, much to the despair of her family. When she is sent to her Aunty Winnie in an attempt to dissuade her, Cleo meets Eve and sparks fly between the two.
