About Tickbox - Theatre

Tickbox is a semi autobiographical play written by a woman of colour. Lubna Kerr shares her parent’s story of coming from a comfortable life in Pakistan to Govan, Glasgow in the 1960’s.

The play deals with issues of migration and identity and ask questions that are not often discussed. Where are you really from? How often do you get asked that question, or is it you who asks it? What difference does it make to people? Have things moved on in 2021 or is discrimination as prevalent as it was last century? What impact does stress have on our body and our mind?

Lubna is also running an online workshop on 20th February to discuss the issues of race and identity raised in the play.
