Sex, religion, and politics collide as six Pakistani-American Muslim women air their dirty lingerie...
Set in post 9/11 America, Dirty Paki Lingerie depicts the stories of six Pakistani-‐American Muslim women ranging in age from a six year old girl to a sixty-‐five year old woman. The play transcends boundaries of culture, religion, and gender, moving and entertaining audiences with its unique and universal appeal. A rich, sexy, and infectiously entertaining mosaic of the sublime, the comic, the poetic, and the political. Cross-‐cultural sparks fly and preconceptions about Muslim women are hilariously shattered in the show The Wall Street Journal says "Breaks down stereotypes of Muslim women in America" and that reviewers call a "must-‐see" production. Dirty Paki Lingerie has played to sold-‐out houses in NYC, London, Toronto , Turkmenistan, Pakistan, and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

It is presented in partnership with The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics at Georgetown University and Bisno Productions.
Karski's determination to report on the extermination of Jews in his native Poland led him on a dangerous mission to alert America and Great Britain about the horrors of the Holocaust.

A ghostly visit from his FairyGodBubbie teaches Ari the secret 10 commandments of show business superstardom to help him make it out of Yeshiva high school alive, come of age, and sing the unsung story America's first openly gay pop star.
