Nadia Manzoor Live on CNN International #BurqOff!

A couple of posts ago I told you about my fellow writer Nadia Manzoor’s one woman show “Burq Off.”  The show was astounding.  I say this not because she is my friend, but because she is so fucking talented.  Below is a clip from the live CNN interview she did this morning.  The next run of the show will be in March. Get tickets now.

 

Nadia Manzoor One Woman Show-Burq Off! #BurqOff

My dear friend Nadia has written and produced her own play. If you are looking to be inspired this holiday season, you need to see this show.  Her journey as a Muslim woman struggling to find herself will astound you.  Get your tickets HERE!

Synopsis: Burq off! is an autobiographical one woman show, charting the journey of a British Pakistani Muslim’s struggle towards self acceptance. As she navigates the conflicting cultural norms of modern London and her conservative Muslim home, she embodies a cast of 21 characters that infuse the story with comedy, religious fundamentalism, cultural critique and spiritual depth.

Along the way you will meet Nadia’s aggressive twin brother, her controlling Muslim father, and the essence of joy in the family, her mother.

In addition, her Islamic teachers, her life long ’western’ best friend, and the first love of her life add a diversity of perspectives to this deeply moving, personal and universal story.
