As a self-confessed “Homicidial Pacifist”, Zehra explains how she is losing the battle to stay neutral when there are so many things that make her angry in the world, not the least of putting spoons in the fork section. No idiots, including politicians, are safe from her angry yet hilarious tirade. Somehow she even brings humour in an educational way to the subject of the way muslims are treated by idiots, and also manages to disarm us on the triggering topic of terrorism. In fact she tackles the hard topics with ease, wit and charm. Even if she is losing the moral high ground in her mind.
There is much to agree with and so much to laugh about. I would call Homicidial Pacifist the wittiest, most intelligent, comedy I’ve seen in the whole Wellington Fringe Festival 2016. It was comedy that made you laugh and made you think, and that was worth the ticket price alone (the stories about her husband were just a huge added bonus). If you see one show this year, see this show!
