Written and Performed by Aizzah Fatima

Sex, religion, and politics collide as six Pakistani-American Muslim females air their dirty lingerie.

Cross-cultural sparks fly and preconceptions about Muslim women, sex, and politics are hilariously shattered in the show The Wall Street Journal says “breaks down stereotypes of Muslim women in America” and that reviewers call a “must-see” production. Playing to sold-out houses in NYC and Toronto, DIRTY PAKI LINGERIE transcends boundaries of culture, religion, and gender, moving and entertaining audiences with its unique – and universal – appeal. A rich, sexy, and infectiously entertaining mosaic of the sublime, the comic, the poetic, and the political.

After sold out shows in NYC, London, Toronto, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival DIRTY PAKI LINGERIE, written and performed by Aizzah Fatima, directed by Erica Gould, and sold-out shows here at Bridge Street Theatre in 2015, DIRTY PAKI LINGERIE comes back to Bridge Street for four performances, March 19 – 22, Thursday – Saturday at 7:30pm and Sunday at 2:00pm.

Dirty Paki Lingerie premiered in NYC in 2011 at The Midtown International Theater Festival and has toured the world since then. In Dirty Paki Lingerie Aizzah Fatima plays six Pakistani-American Muslim women ranging in age from a six to sixty-five and a dozen other minor characters. Cross-cultural sparks fly and preconceptions about Muslim women, sex, and politics are hilariously shattered in the show that The Wall Street Journal says “breaks down stereotypes of Muslim women in America” and that reviewers call a “must-see” production. Dirty Paki Lingerie transcends boundaries of culture, religion, and gender, moving and entertaining audiences with its unique and universal appeal. A rich, sexy, and infectiously entertaining mosaic of the sublime, the comic, the poetic, and the political.
