Photo Flash: First Look at About Face & Silk Road's BRAHMAN/I: A ONE-HIJRA STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW

About Face Theatre and Silk Road Rising present the Chicago premiere of Brahman/i: A One-Hijra Stand Up Comedy Show, by Aditi Brennan Kapil, directed by AFT Artistic Director Andrew Volkoff. This bold, comic exploration of cultural and gender identity plays now through April 27, 2014 at Silk Road Rising, Pierce Hall at the Historic Chicago Temple Building, 77 W. Washington St. in Chicago. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the show below!

Brahman/i: A One-Hijra Stand Up Comedy Show features Fawzia Mirza in the title role with Damian Conrad.

In this provocative play masquerading as a stand-up comedy routine, an Indian intersex person, or hijra, explores history, mythology, gender roles... and high school. Brahman/i - funny, cynical, inventive and intensely charismatic - takes on more than a dozen unforgettable characters in a fascinating life story that most of us can barely even begin to imagine.

The production team for Brahman/I includes Roger Wykes (scenic design), Jeremy Floyd (costume design), Sarah Hughey (lighting design), and Josh Horvath (sound design).

Tickets: Previews: $20 adults/$10 students & seniors. Regular run: $35 adults/$20 students & seniors. Discounts available for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are avaiable at www.aboutfacetheatre.com, www.silkroadrising.org or by calling (312) 857-1234 ext. 201.
