Exposed Brick Theatre presents
American as Curry Pie
Written and performed by Aamera Siddiqui
Directed by Suzy Messerole

For Aamera Siddiqui, growing up as an immigrant in the United States was a balancing act between her Indian Muslim heritage and her American surroundings. Aamera’s world consisted of one country inside the four walls of her family’s home and another country outside those walls. Curried peas and hot dogs, Catholic school uniforms and colorful head scarves, Urdu and English all blended and bounced off one another to shape her identity. Told with honesty and humor, American as Curry Pie is one woman’s story about immigration, assimilation, and what it means to be a hyphenated American.
