Event Details

Performance and Justice Symposium at John Jay College presents: 

Dirty Parki Lingerie by Aizzah Fatima** 

 

Dirty Paki Lingerie directed by Erica Gould, dramaturgy by Cobina Gillitt, first premiered in NYC in 2011 where it had a sold out run. The Wall Street Journal called it the play that "Breaks down stereotypes of Muslim women in America." The play has had sold out performances in Toronto, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and most recently in Pakistan (US State Department sponsored four city tour). Of her inspiration, playwright and performer Aizzah Fatima says: "In a time when Muslims in America are constantly in the news for all the wrong reasons, I wanted to create a play to show that the Muslim-American community is not a monolith in thought or practice."
