Tickbox interweaves the journeys of two women united by blood, passion and determination
Tickbox is a semi-autobiographical, bilingual, one woman play, in Scots-English and Urdu.
It describes a woman’s journey from a very comfortable, middle class life in Pakistan to Govan in Glasgow, sharing challenges and contrasts that she encountered when she moved here.
This is intertwined with the story of her daughter and how parallel their lives were, decades apart. Both women encountered many barriers and situations that typecast them in a stereotypical role of downtrodden Asian women.
Tickbox combines theatre, storytelling and comedy to interweave the journeys of two Scottish Pakistani women united by blood, passion and determination.
