Following an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe run, Shazia Mirza takes her new show on tour. The Kardashians Made Me Do It is a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides.
The Kardashians Made Me Do It is inspired by three girls who left Bethnal Green to join ISIS, and an unrelated radio piece Shazia contributed to the BBC which subsequently received a record number of complaints.
The show tells of the confusion it caused as she looks into the nature of offence, the dangers of politically correct liberalism versus the sinister and terrifying intrusion of ISIS into the lives of young British Asian women.
Running Time: 60 mins
