Duration: 6 – 27 Aug
Price: $25 - $38

Sharing stories from a life that straddles two very different cultures; arguing with mullahs; being an atheist in a religious, liberal family; planning the perfect murder; wandering outside the green zone in war torn Kabul; being stalked by a sheep in Coniston; and having tea with some terrorists in Kashmir.

Journey with Sameena to find out why fear is redundant, joy is essential, and terrorists can be a real hoot. Sameena Zehra is an award-winning performer, writer, director, and blues singer/songwriter. Before moving to Aotearoa, Sameena lived in the UK where she has performed at the National Theatre and toured internationally with the Royal Shakespeare Company. This is her debut show at Circa Theatre.
