Honour: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan

Winner of Best Solo Show in the 2016 Fringe NYC

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. Referencing both the Mahabharata and contemporary Bollywood, experience this bold acted and danced protest to the contemporary sex trade and abuse of young women in India.

Honour: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan is a fun, poignant and deeply moving coming of age story of a girl in a brothel. Meet the priest, pimp, Madame, eunuch and others that make up her world. Paired with Apne Aap, an organization dedicated to the end of the sex trade, Honour: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan delves into a child's life pushed to the brink. Will she escape her fate?
