Qurrat Kadwani’s Solo Play “Intrusion” Comes to Carthage
Qurrat Ann Kadwani is an award-winning actor, producer, and philanthropist.
KENOSHA, Wis. -The Performing Arts Series kicks off its 2019-20 season with a one woman show written and performed by Qurrat Ann Kadwani, Intrusion. The performance will take place at Carthage College on Tuesday, September 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wartburg Theatre in the David A. Straz, Jr. Center and will conclude with a talkback with the artist.
Intrusion presents a captivating and poignant story about sexual violence in all facets. Set twenty years in the future, a future where there have been no reported incidents of sexual violence in over a decade, one woman comes forward and begins a movement to prevent and raise awareness about domestic issues in our society. The play features eight characters (all portrayed by the multitalented Kadwani): a psychologist, the prosecutor, a politician, an impassioned college student, a third grader, a day trader who recounts his experience with sexual assault, a journalist, and a professor. Each of these characters contributes their own perspectives, providing audiences a holistic view of the issue intended to entertain, teach, and spark discussion about domestic violence.
