Shazia Mirza: The Kardashians Made Me Do It

Event Date: 
01/02/2017 - 8:00pm
Venue: 
Exeter Corn Exchange, Market Street, Exeter, EX1 1BW.

'The Kardashians Made Me Do It' is a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides.

The show is inspired by three girls who left Bethnal Green to join ISIS, and an unrelated radio piece Shazia contributed to the BBC which subsequently received a record number of complaints.  The show tells of the confusion it caused, as she looks into the nature of offence, the dangers of politically correct liberalism versus the sinister and terrifying intrusion of ISIS into the lives of young British Asian women.
