A one-woman show. Hilarity and heartbreak ensues in this sweet coming-of-age story about trying to reconcile who you really are with whom your family wants you to be. Fawzia Mirza shares a journey of self-discovery from childhood as a South Asian 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 Indian film star, Sharmila Tagore. Using personal anecdotes, pop culture and even some South Asian history lessons, ifs a show about family, identity and finding yourself.
