When Almitra was 19 she made a deal with her Ma. She needed to leave Pakistan to have the future in theatre she always wanted. The two things stopping her? Her unique passport...and bloody Canada.
In this autobiographical show, with all original music, she shares her story of displacement, racial profiling, and visa rejections. Originally an angsty hate letter to Canada, the show has evolved into a heartwarming tale of borders and belonging that is both unique and universally relevant.
With musical inspiration from Queen, The Eagles, Hamilton, South Asian orchestral music, Blues and Jazz. Blacklisted takes you on a voyage from the rooftops of Karachi to the soft sands of Coogee in a cheeky, genre-blending story of one woman’s journey home.
