A British Pakistani’s Muslim Autobiographical One Woman Play
Written & Performed by Nadia Parvez Manzoor
Directed & Developed by Tara Elliott

BURQ OFF! an autobiographical one-woman show written and performed by Nadia P Manzoor, is a jaunty tour through madly opposing worlds.

The glowing promise of modern London versus the glum realities of a conservative Pakistani Muslim home are punctuated by fierce Bollywood dance moves and at least one blackout drinking incident.

Embodying 21 different characters — a domineering father, soulful mum, saucy English friend and Islamic studies teachers whose interests range from slapping to pornography — Nadia illuminates her conflicted sense of identity while questioning repressive cultural norms.

Moving, funny, deeply personal and yet universal, BURQ OFF! explores what it takes to evolve past the veil.
