Me, My Mom and Sharmila Tagore: New Play Explores Family and Identity
Theater Wit presents Me, My Mom and Sharmila Tagore
, a new play from dynamic writer-performer Fawzia Mirza. In this heartwarming play, Mirza tackles an issue that's universal for children: how do we get our parents to accept us for who we are, instead of who they dreamed we would be? Me, My Mom and Sharmila Tagore
chronicles Mirza's own struggle to connect with her mother as she built a name for herself as a queer actress and activist. Told with humor and deep insight, this journey of self-discovery follows Mirza from her childhood as a Pakistani Muslim in small-town Canada to her adulthood as an actress in the heart of Chicago. Through it all, the two women's shared love for glamorous Bollywood film star Sharmila Tagore serves as a symbol of the familial love that ties them together forever.
