Summary

Burq Off! is an autobiographical coming-of-age story about a British Pakistani girl trying to find herself in a world of conflicting norms. Nadia was raised as a cultural yo-yo, bouncing between the expectations of her conservative Muslim family and her saucy British school friends. Love, lies, a burqa, and a bikini. Nadia has no idea who she is, but she'll try anything to find out.

Purchase the audiobook, and hear Nadia perform her 21 different characters. Nadia's very own father reads stage directions. At the end you'll discover a special Q & A between Nadia and her father in which they discuss, life, love, and his opinions about this very personal show. www.nadiapmanzoor.com

Great play

It's little bit stereotypical but very funny. I would recommend to listen to the last chapter first to understand authors intentions and where the idea came from as it will make it lot more interesting within that context. Over all it was very funny and enjoyable. Perfect lenght. Perfect narrations. Keep it up.
