Sept. 22 show explores immigrant journeys

 

East Campus will host a free one-woman show called “They Call Me Q” on Sept. 22 at 11:30 a.m. in the Community Room.

 

The play, written and performed by Qurrat Ann Kadwani, explores the experiences of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Bronx.

 

“They Call Me Q” symbolizes the journey of immigrants who seek balance between cultural pressure and wanting acceptance into American culture.

 

During the one-hour performance, Kadwani will perform as 13 different characters, portraying her parents, teachers, classmates and friends who shaped her life.

 

Kadwani has received many national and international awards.

 

In 2014, she became the first South Asian female to have a solo play produced off Broadway, where it ran for seven months. She was also featured on Fox 5 NY as a “Woman Who Shapes the Future.”
