Audition Description

Sheila, a nineteen-year-old first-generation Canadian, is torn between being a doting Pakistani daughter and a free-spirited undergrad. As her two worlds increasingly clash, and Sheila is threatened with the loss of her childhood innocence and newfound first love, her mental health is pushed to the limit as she attempts to keep everyone around her satisfied.

  • Alyia and her husband Azeem moved to Canada 10 years ago, when Sheila was 9 and her younger sister was 4. She had her youngest son in Canada and has been a stay at home mom nearly ever since. Alyia is the matriarch of the family and is feeling a loss of control similar to Sheila. Her husband, once the family\'s breadwinner, is now unemployed yet unwilling to change their lifestyle. She has always given her children more freedom and independence than most mothers in their community, but still practices traditional values and gender roles and expects her children to do the same. She feels a new distance with her eldest daughter, Sheila, as she enters a world outside of their community and religion that Aliya is not allowed to be a part of. Aliya wants to keep up external appearances with her children and community in the midst of her and Azeem\'s financial hardships but leans too heavily on Sheila while trying to protect everyone else.

  • Azeem is the sterner, more traditional parent in Sheila's household. Despite losing his job, he still wants to keep up appearances, and refuses to sell his car or accept help from those around him. He loves Sheila but there has always been a distance between them as they can both be stubborn and defiant in their beliefs. Azeem has always gone to work and taken care of his family and has an inflated sense of confidence. He does not notice Sheila's distancing herself from their family at first, and worries it is too late once she detaches herself from them.
