In this provocative play masquerading as a stand-up comedy routine, an Indian intersex person 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.

"A fascinating piece, Brahman/i is a layered, insightful consideration of Indian-American cultural identity, gender and colonisation that happens to take the form of a stand-up comedy routine. Brahman/i hinges on a fiery, magnetic central performance by Fawzia Mirza, who pins down just the right kind of dangerous charisma needed to spin this tale, all while playing a character who must give voice to several other characters, including Brahman/i's classmates, underachieving cousin and beloved Auntie."
