About the play:
The Wrong Bashir is a comedic play about an Ismaili family whose son, Bashir, is chosen to be the Students’ Mukhisaheb (religious leader). Problem is… Bashir hasn’t been keeping up with his religious studies. Hijinks ensue and this comedic family tale will have you laughing as Zahida creatively weaves wit, family dynamics, and touching moments into her story.
