Shafana and Aunt Sarrinah: Soft Revolution: Review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This play is a beautiful dialogue between Aunt and Niece, both devout Muslim women, that traverses themes of identity, acceptance, faith and love, with the central tension Shafana’s recent decision to start wearing the hijab and her Aunt Sarrinah’s complete opposition to this pronouncement. The play interrogates the stereotypical assumptions generally evidenced in Australian media around representations of the Muslim faith and particularly the female Muslim community.
