Written by Anthony McCarten
Anthony McCarten (Ladies Night, The Theory of Everything) has dramatised his explosive novel; pleading to for tolerance, the freedom of individuals, and the freedom of art. Azime is 20 years old and shy. She is Kurdish but grew up in London. She lives in two different worlds. She secretly visits a comedy course, and later slips into a niqab and becomes the world’s first Muslim comedian.
Her appearance is explosive: her family is against her, the British press celebrates her as a sensation, and the Internet is hot with death threats.
As part of the 2016 Circa Season we will be presenting a number of Play Readings throughout the year. In our 40th birthday year we are delighted to celebrate the 100+ New Zealand playwrights whose work has captivated our audiences over the years.
A Play Reading will include actors on stage reading the play in full, directed and rehearsed in advance of the public reading.
