HONOUR: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan is a fun, poignant and deeply moving coming of age story of a girl in a brothel. In this one-woman show, meet the priest, pimp, Madame, eunuch and others that make up her world. HONOUR delves into a child's life pushed to the brink; will she escape her fate?

 

Memoirs of Geisha meets Slumdog Millionaire in this vibrant award-winning stage show with original music, colors of India and a riveting mother-daughter tale told in the shadow of a Mumbai brothel by Dipti Mehta. Referencing both the Mahabharata and contemporary Bollywood, experience this boldly acted and danced protest to the contemporary sex trade and abuse of young women in India.

 

"Dipti Mehta is a passionate performer. Her vibrant piece, HONOUR, has her living and acting out multiple roles, demonstrating social constructs of gender that victimize girls and women. Funny, sad, educational, and fiery, HONOUR is a valuable example of theatre with social conscience." - Ashley Judd 

 

"HONOUR is Mysterious, logical, Tragic, Empathetic and Kind as life itself. Our minds, are organized by stories, its how we understand other people, Honour in giving us this story allows us to enter another world and empathize."  - Gloria Steinem

 

"HONOUR is a must-see." - Stephani Klemons, Associate Choreographer, Hamilton
