Review from Goldstar Member

A very informative, well written & excellent performance. Myself & my friend thouroghly enjoyed it. I was surprized, however, at the
non-diverse audience.

Description

Written and performed by Aamera Siddiqui

Directed by Meena Natarajan and Suzy Messerole

For Aamera Siddiqui, growing up as an immigrant in the United States was a balancing act between her Indian heritage and her American surroundings. Aamera’s world consisted of one country inside the four walls of her family’s home and another country outside those walls. Curried peas and hot dogs, Catholic school uniforms and colorful saris, Urdu and English all blended and bounced off one another to shape Aamera’s identity. 

Told with honesty and humor, American as Curry Pie is one woman’s story about immigration, assimilation, and discovering what it means to be an American.

A free post-show discussion with special guests and the people who bring the stories to History Theatre’s stage, following the weekend matinees on March 19 & 26 and April 2 & 10.
