My writing is dedicated reclaiming cultural spheres, stories and knowledge that have been erased by colonialism, slavery and systemic racism. Being bi-cultural and the successor of Black American and South Asian artists, I am drawn to stories that explore social and cultural intersections. In my plays I break open reality through movement, and poetry.

Children of The Wise

Rafi was born in 1889, and Nadia was born in 1999. Can they work together despite living at opposite ends of the 20th century?

Nadia is struggling with her identity as a 1st generation U.S. born when she travels to Pakistan and is met by the memory of her enigmatic grandfather Rafi. Through family and fantasy she learns of his life as an anti-colonial activist in British India, a theater maker in Berlin, a Bollywood film star in pre-partition India, and a subversive playwright in Pakistan. Inspired by Rafi’s tenacity and strife Nadia is pushed to make a drastic decision about how she can move forward and what it means to be our ancestors' wildest dreams. This play is based on the real-life story of Pakistan's first modern Dramatist, Rafi Peer, as collected through oral accounts, interviews and recordings from his children by one of his granddaughters, the playwright.

One Google and One or, Sher(azade)

Named for the "One Thousand and One Nights" this play juxtaposes Scheherazade's relentless storytelling with a contemporary University classroom where students must fight for evidence of their own heritage. While Scheherazade buys life with narrative, the contemporary "Sher" works to reclaim the humanity of the peoples who once traded the old stories of the 'nights' by challenging her University's history curriculum.
