Shazia Mirza – Coconut (2020 Tour)

When Shazia Mirza was left to starve to death on a deserted Island by Bear Grylls, with nine other ‘celebrities’ she didn’t know, the Island became a microcosm for the world and everything going on outside.

“What’s going on? Why is everyone fighting? What is a strong woman and does she really exist? And why are there no women left with real eyebrows?”

Shazia explores loyalty and what makes the best leader, masking our dislike for other people and why there is no such thing as an alpha male.

Following the success of her critically acclaimed recent shows; With Love From St. Tropez, a riot of brexit, buquas and butt-plugs through the lens of The Periodic Table, and The Kardashians Made Me Do It, a searing and urgent exploration of life, love and Jihadi brides, Shazia Mirza is taking on the burning issues of our time in her latest show for 2020.
