On Behalf of All Muslims

A work-in-progress by Zahra Noorbakhsh
Directed by Lisa Marie Rollins

AUGUST 7 - 23, 2018
Brava Theater Center Cabaret


Iranian-American comedian Zahra Noorbakhsh is speaking up and out on behalf of all Muslims and for everyone. There will be so much educating! You’re welcome.

Zahra’s voice is an asset in the polarizing and often violent political turmoil we live in as Americans today.
— W. Kamau Bell

In her signature inquisitive and unapologetic comedic style, Zahra dives into her colonized mind and her budding queerness. She explores her relationships with her superior immigrant parents, her mediocre white husband, and her unhealthy obsessions with TED talks, Jaws, and Corey Feldman.

This August, join Zahra for a work in development, as she builds her comedy special with each new audience. Every night is framed with a different theme and features a new set of stories.

This project is partially supported by a grant from by Theatre Bay Area.

Always inciteful, always subversive... Zahra’s comedic romps disrupt an outdated narrative and confront Muslims and other Americans alike to reconsider what it means to be both.
