Shattering Muslim Stereotypes


Dirty Paki Lingerie by Aizzah Fatima – a one-woman show about Muslim life in America that has toured overseas and throughout the U.S. – makes its New Jersey premiere as part of Borderless, the ongoing series about the repercussions of 21st Century globalization, presented by Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC).

Borderless – the new series by JCTC that runs through March – brings a diverse array of new and emerging voices to audiences with a comprehensive range of art, theatre, readings and performances. Dirty Paki Lingerie is presented by Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) on Saturday March 11/7:30 pm at Merseles Studios, 339 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ 07302.

Dirty Paki Lingerie explores the lives of six Pakistani-American women as they struggle to negotiate their identities in post-9/11 America. Fatima’s thought-provoking play delves into how immigrants negotiate the cultural clash between the traditional and the contemporary while also shattering preconceptions about Muslim life by showing the real lives of women rarely depicted on the stage.
