About a Buoy: Adventures in Adoption - with Isma A

About a Buoy: Adventures in Adoption - with Isma A


Stand-up comedian Isma Almas gives a full preview of her show before it reaches the Edinburgh Festival 

Isma is British multi-culturalism at its best. In 'About a Buoy; adventures in adoption’, her preconception-shattering, down to earth and engaging style, explores transracial adoption, gender, religion, sexuality, race, one homophobic Muslim mother and Freddie Mercury.
