A semi-autobiographical, one-woman play in Scots-English and Urdu, which combines theatre, storytelling and comedy to interweave the journeys of two Scottish Pakistani women.
Tickbox describes a Pakistani woman’s journey from a very comfortable, middle class life in Pakistan to Govan in Glasgow. It recounts the challenges and contrasts she encountered when she first moved to her new home in Scotland, and intertwines with her daughter's story, and the barriers she too has faced.
Drawing out the parallels in their lives, decades apart, we meet two women whose experiences could see them typecast in the stereotypical role of downtrodden Asian women, but who are united by blood, passion and determination.
