Proclaimed "A Theatrical Force" by the Orlando Weekly for her uncanny embodiment of 13 characters, Qurrat Ann Kadwani searches for identity in her autobiographical one-woman show. THEY CALL ME Q is the story of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Boogie Down Bronx who gracefully seeks balance between cultural pressure and acceptance into the American culture. Along the journey, Qurrat Ann Kadwani transforms into 13 characters that have shaped her life including her Indian parents, Caucasian teachers, Puerto Rican classmates, Indian and African-American friends. Broadway World DC states Ms. Kadwani has "an undeniable talent for accents and gives the audience a theatrical experience that it will remember far after the show." Laden with heart and abundant humor, a coming of age tale that the Montreal Gazette says is "witty, polished, inspiring," THEY CALL ME Q gives voice to all the universal struggles for identity and self-understanding that are experienced by immigrants of all nationalities.

The Village Voice says Kadwani “delivers a winning tale.”

NY Theatre Guide wrote, “Filled with charm, humor and heart… They Call Me Q is comedic
without seeming over the top, and thought provoking without being preachy.”

Broadway World wrote, "In some rare cases, the decision to share tales of one's past can give the audience a theatrical experience that it will remember far after the last show. They Call Me Q is one of those shows."
