Brown Girls Do It Too: Mama Told Me Not To Come

Tue 23 May – Sat 10 Jun 23 75 minutes

Their critically acclaimed podcast Brown Girls Do It Too (‘Best Podcast of the Year’ British Podcast Awards 2020, Asian Media 2021), explores messy realities, fantasies, sexpectations and navigating life and relationships as British Asian women.

Two seasons in, they have amassed fans who love their honesty and openness (love a period sex sesh…anyone else?) and faced enormous backlash online for breaking the silence on sex in Asian communities.

Bringing their characteristic candour, quick wit and infectious personalities to the stage, Poppy and Rubina reflect on the seminal moments from their lives from first orgasms and loves, to racism and family politics. Expect songs, sketches, and some very graphic content.

This is a celebration of brown British women, genital warts and all.
