Fights Like a Girl! is a reflection of everything Sajeela Kershi has fought for and against. The show was born at the Women’s March in London, chanting against Trump, travel bans and global injustices, with Sajeela fighting to keep her prime position on the frontline - even if that means elbowing Harriet Harman out of the way, and not allowing a man to push in at the front, who, it turns out is Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
Sajeela looks at her own upbringing, telling true stories of fitting in, fighting bullies, fighting for a life on her terms. She looks at universal misogyny in culture, including a true story of how she and a group of women in her family were kept hostage but managed to fight of their extremist captors - a tale of unexpected hilarity! Finally we learn of Sajeela’s personal frightening challenge, to march through the Edinburgh Fringe in spite of a sudden inexplicable rapid hearing loss. It’s a fight against time, will she make it to the finish line of the Fringe... to the sound of rapturous applause or deafening silence?
