Fcking Crackers & Come Here Often?

Brown Boy is lost. But he comes to a startling realization about his Identity as he tries to navigate his way through the “community”. Heart Breaking as much as it is funny, Brown Boy goes on a journey to unlearn his past, learn how to cope in spaces, and eventually stand on his own.
“Hurt People Hurt people. But Who is Healing Anybody?”
Content Warning: Racism, Homophobia, Mentions of Sexual Assault, Mature Subject Matter.
COME HERE OFTEN?
Written and Performed by Shohana Sharmin
Shohana Sharmin doesn’t date much. There’s a reason for that.
Starting at age 7, Shohana learned to divide herself into smaller parts. To be brown and Muslim and abused and queer and bicultural all at once felt like too much, so she started compartmentalizing – creating neat little boxes within herself to make sense of her own existence. In this fast-paced comedic one-woman rollercoaster of a show, Shohana examines the moments in her life when she split herself in two and traces back the ways in which she has kept all the parts alive.
