We are thrilled to announce guest speaker Qurrat Kadwani, award winning playwright and actress of the Off Broadway play "They Call Me Q."

Qurrat Kadwani

Playing 13 ethnically diverse characters in one hour, Qurrat is the first South Asian Muslim woman to perform a solo play Off Broadway. "They Call Me Q" opened in May at St Luke's

Theater in NYC, and questions how to develop identity within
the context of a traditional culture while living in an urban American environment.

To date, Qurrat has performed her solo play over 80 times, received numerous awards for her work,
and had much impact reaching far beyond the theater. Colleges and universities all over the US have
invited her to perform her solo play as part of their multi-cultural programming alongside discussions and workshops on diversity. Non profit charity organizations have presented her solo play as benefit fundraisers. In addition, she recently served as a panel moderator for an award ceremony at the United Nations - "World Women's Global Council Champions of Change" - featuring women who have created social change in their field.

"They Call Me Q" boasts several awards, including "Best Play Award" at the Maui Fringe Festival  2013, and has received an award by the Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center in San Francisco. Qurrat will soon receive an award from SAPNA NYC for inspiring South Asian women to dream, and to make their dreams a reality. She also has received the "Best Actress Award" at the Variations Theater Group: Harvest Festival 2012 in NYC.

Qurrat holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater from SUNY Geneseo, and was a double scholarship recipient for her directing and acting contributions. She has taught a monologue writing and performance workshop and acting classes. She has numerous tv, film, & theater credits. Her TV appearances include ABC News "What Would You Do,"As the World Turns," and "All My Children" to name a few. In her spare time, she coordinates a charity group - "A Slice of Hope" - that spreads hope and joy to homeless shelters across the country by providing pizza parties and musicians to entertain the homeless.
