Broke and compromised: We Are Lady Parts reflects the “nitty gritty” of life in a band

Reading now: 173

The second season of We Are Lady Parts, the riotously enjoyable all-female U.K. Muslim punk sitcom begins with the band at the show's heart on a sold-out tour and fighting off affectionate fans.

Things have changed for Lady Parts, whose rise from scrappy DIY beginnings to something approaching success formed the arc of the first season when it debuted in 2021.

Writer-director-lead songwriter Nida Manzoor takes inspiration from films such as This Is Spinal Tap and The Commitments to show the transformation of lead character Amina as she diverges from her path of studying microbiology and seeking a husband to play guitar with her friends.

In season one, Amina was torn between her fast-rising band and a more traditional life. Backed by her bandmates — lead singer Saira, bassist Bisma, drummer Ayesha, and band manager Momtaz — she overcame societal expectations and stage fright to become an integral part of a band on the rise.
