Theater Wit presents Me, My Mom and Sharmila Tagore, 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.

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. Learn More
