Dirty Paki Lingerie

AFO FEST

DIRTY PAKI LINGERIE

Written and Performed by Aizzah Fatima

Directed by Erica Gould

October 2012

 

Sex, religion, and politics collide as six Pakistani-American Muslim females air

their dirty lingerie…

 

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 and Toronto, DIRTY PAKI 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.
