Dirty Pakistani Lingerie by Aizza Fatima

Thursday, 25 February 2016 - 8:00pm
 
Writer/Performer: Aizzah Fatima
Director: Erica Gould
 
Set in post 9/11 America, Dirty Pakistani Lingerie depicts the stories of six Pakistani-American Muslim women ranging in age from a six year old girl to a sixty-five year old woman at the chaotic juncture of two different cultures.
 
 
Cross-cultural sparks fly and preconceptions about Muslim women, sex, and politics are hilariously shattered in the show The Wall Street Journal says “Breaks down stereotypes of Muslim women in America” and that reviewers call a “must-see” production.
 
 
Playing to sold-out houses in NYC, Toronto, Pakistan, and Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Dirty Pakistani Lingerie transcends boundaries of culture, religion, and gender, moving and entertaining audiences with its unique and universal appeal. A rich, sexy, and infectiously entertaining mosaic of the sublime, the comic, the poetic, and the political.
 
Fatima is a gifted performer... refreshingly assertive and challenges stereotypes. See this production NYtheatre.com
 
The direction from Erica Gould is superb... A must-see of this year's festival Fringe Review
