May 13  //  21:00 – 00:00 pm  // Drop Inn  – Kompagnistræde 34.

Fawzia Mirza could be introduced as a Pakistani American queer muslim. But first and foremost she is an actor, writer, producer and all around multitalent.

Fawzia takes us on journey with a hilarious coming-of-age story, told by a first generation American woman of color. At some point, we all realize we are not exactly the person our parents expected us to become.

Join us for this extraordinary event, where we start the evening with a short celebration of Sabaahs 10th. jubilee. Please stay for drinks after the show where DJ JEAN VON BADEN will sintilate our senses and grove us into party mood.

About the show
A hilarious coming-of-age story told by a first generation American woman of color. At some point, we all realize we are not exactly the person our parents expected us to become. How do we find our own voice and embrace our personal identity in the face of societal and familial pressures? Told with humor and deep insight, dynamic writer-performer Fawzia Mirza shares a journey of self-discovery and strength that carries her all the way from childhood as a Pakistani Muslim in small-town Canada to living out as an actress in the heart of Chicago. Told through the lens of two women’s shared love for glamorous Bollywood film star, Sharmila Tagore, using personal anecdotes, pop culture and even some South Asian history lessons, this is a profound and exciting new show about family, love, romance and finding yourself.
