How the Show Began

Location: Driveway
by Sehba Sarwar & Autumn Knight

Sehba Sarwar and Autumn Knight introduced the show. Sarwar, who conceived the show, talked about her experiences in Karachi and in Houston and how religious extremism is escalating in both spaces. Knight talked about her involvement with the production. The introduction was moved from the kitchen to the driveway since the audience size had grown larger than expected.
