Description

James Elazzi’s Queen Fatima is a heartfelt comedy about celebrating our differences.

SYNOPSIS

Fast approaching 31, Fatima is feeling the pressure from her bakery owning family to get married and have children. Her boyfriend, Karim, wants their relationship to remain secret. His high-flying, lawyer parents definitely wouldn’t approve of the match.

In an effort to prove to Karim and his family she is worthy of his love, Fatima comes up with a plan to win Queen Lebanon Australia. Moonia, the pageant organiser, accepts Fatima because this year she wants a ‘diverse group of girls’ and Fatima is unlike anything the competition has seen before. With the help of her 74 year-old best friend Gada and her coffee cup readings, Fatima goes through a transformation that not even she expected.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

Queen Fatima was first produced by the 2021 Sydney Festival and the National Theatre of Parramatta, at the Riversied Theatre from 1-16 January 2021.
