It’s difficult to fit in when your dad sticks out like a brown thumb and even you aren’t sure how to

EXACTLY pronounce your surname!

 

Growing up in a mixed-race, mixed-faith household at the height of The Troubles, writer Joseph Nawaz

takes us through some old family snapshots, and his childhood years in 80s and 90s Belfast. Expect

excruciating revelation, some confusion as to the actual direction of Mecca from Balmoral Avenue plus

finally solving the age-old riddle of what the difference is between a Protestant Muslim and a Catholic

Muslim. Running through it all, like a stick of cardamom-flavoured rock, is Joe’s complicated relationship

with his Pakistani father, whose sudden, untimely demise precipitated a trip to Pakistan and some

surprising discoveries.

 

Join us for a funny, sometimes poignant evening, about a struggle with family and identity in a cold social

climate, not to mention the impossibility of a halal Ulster Fry.
