Fat Muslim Girls or Zanya Nafari

February 1, 2019 to February 2, 2019
Hormel Theatre

by Ken Kaissar

When risqué photographs of female college students are found in a male professor’s desk, Dr. Diane Patterson is determined to see justice served. She mobilizes the faculty, writes letters and gives interviews to keep the story alive. But she fails to take two major details into account: all of the photographed students are overweight, and all are of Middle-Eastern descent. The public becomes less concerned with justice for one student, and more concerned with body shaming and threats of global terrorism.
