Sajeela Kershi – FIGHTS LIKE A GIRL

When: 4 Jul 2021

Produced By: MTM Productions

Fights Like a Girl! is a reflection of everything Sajeela
Kershi has fought for and against. The show was born at the Women’s March in
London, chanting against Trump, travel bans and global injustices, with Sajeela
fighting to keep her prime position on the frontline – even if that means
elbowing Harriet Harman out of the way, and not allowing a man to push in at
the front, who, it turns out is Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

Sajeela looks at her own upbringing, telling true stories of
fitting in, fighting bullies, fighting for a life on her terms. She looks at
universal misogyny in culture, including a true story of how she and a group of
women in her family were kept hostage but managed to fight off their extremist
captors – a tale of unexpected hilarity!

Finally we learn of Sajeela’s personal frightening challenge, to march through the Edinburgh Fringe in spite of
a sudden inexplicable rapid hearing loss. It’s a fight against time, will she
make it to the finish line of the Fringe… to the sound of rapturous applause
or deafening silence?

‘What and who will we fight for…and why?’ Join Sajeela as
she puts up her dukes and picks her battles. Find out if you are a fight or
flight by nature, why you are to Blame for Brexit and Trump and if you are ultimately
failing to fight for a productive society…whilst in hysterics. Written for
and featured on a variety of BBC Radio.

Smart, funny with a mischievous glint’   TIMES

‘Kershi has a voice. And, going by the number of people
attending her shows, the message is getting through’   TELEGRAPH

‘Hugely talented, extremely funny, divine diva’   TIME OUT

‘The woman is simply a treasure. Magnetic, lovable and
enormously witty, she’s like Claire Rayner scripted by Kenneth Williams’   THE SPECTATOR

‘Incidental digressions, sharpness of wit and ad-libbing in
her Joanna Lumley cut-glass vowels will be more than worth it… be quick to
discover Edinburgh’s best kept secret!’
