Description

Chatterbox, a play about a Pakistani girl at primary school in 1970s Glasgow. Lubna was labelled "stupid" because she couldn't speak English – by people who couldn't speak Urdu. This humorous and touching semi-autobiographical one-woman show looks at the impact of the labels we are given as children and how they persist into adulthood. What labels were you given? How did they affect you? Do they still make you anxious? Where did you find safety when neds chased you down the street? The show is a prequel to actor, writer, comedian and playwright Lubna Kerr's four-star Fringe-hit Tickbox.
