Qurrat Ann Kadwani will perform her one-woman show, ‘They Call Me Q,’ Jan. 24 at Pitt at Greensburg.

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg will present “They Call Me Q,”a one-woman show written, performed, and co-produced by Qurrat Ann Kadwani, at 8 p.m. Jan. 24 in Ferguson Theater on the Hempfield campus.

The event is free and open to the public.

“They Call Me Q” is the story of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx and seeking balance between cultural pressure and wanting acceptance into the American culture. Along her journey, she transforms into 13 characters who have shaped her life. Caucasian teachers, Puerto Rican classmates and Indian and African-American friends are portrayed in a humorous, heartfelt performance.

Kadwani is an award-winning actress, producer, emcee, TV host and philanthropist.

“They Call Me Q” is an award-winning performance that ran for seven months as an off-Broadway production, making Kadwani the first South Asian female to accomplish this achievement. She has performed her solo play more than 200 times in 35 states.

Kadwani is a founding artistic director of eyeBLINK and the head of its theater department.

She teaches private classes in solo play creation, monologue writing and performance, monologue prep, audition prep and acting business plan.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
