    Brown Girls Do It Too: Mama Told Me Not To Come

    • 16 Nov -
      17 Nov 2022
      16 Nov - 17 Nov 2022

    Created by and starring Poppy Jay and Rubina Pabani. Adapted from the BBC Sounds Podcast.


    Fierce, funny, and wonderfully frank, Poppy and Rubina have sex and they aren’t ashamed to talk about it.  Their critically acclaimed BBC Sounds podcast Brown Girls Do It Too (‘Best Podcast of the Year’ British Podcast Awards 2020, Asian Media 2021) has amassed fans who love their honesty and openness (love a period sex sesh…anyone else?) and faced enormous backlash online for breaking the silence on sex in Asian communities.

    Bringing their characteristic candour, quick wit and infectious personalities to the stage, Poppy and Rubina reflect on what it means to be brown British women and explore the seminal moments from their lives, from first orgasms and loves to racism and family politics.

    With songs, sketches and some very graphic content, come and meet the Aunties, Little Claire, Big Poppa and Reuben and find out why you’ll never match with Poppy and Rubina on Samosa Soulmates.

    This is a celebration of brown British women, genital warts and all.
