The Luckiest Girl Alive is a sensitive and inspiring puppet show based on the extraordinary life of activist, campaigner and FGM survivor, Hoda Ali. This story recounts Hoda’s warm, loving childhood memories of Somalia and her epic journey across the globe to heal herself physically and emotionally from the dangerous complications of FGM. The moments of horror are balanced by moments of light relief, provided in the humanity in her story.

The show is followed by an audience Q&A.
