In 2007 Bombay Black was nominated for a Governor General’s Literary Award.
Set in present-day India, Bombay Black is a powerful story of vengeance, betrayal, and seduction.
Anosh has a wonderful theatrical sensibility and a gift for bringing together magical fables and the gritty reality of Indian street life. The play is the story of Apsara, who lives in Bombay with her mother, making a living by selling erotic dances to wealthy men. When a blind man named Kamal arrives for an appointment, the complex and brutal past of the three characters slowly rises to the surface.
Featuring a remarkable poetic text, bold theatrical imagery and a combination of contemporary Bombay bar dancing and Indian classical dance, Bombay Black is challenging work by one of Canada’s leading new playwriting voices. (nightswimmingtheatre.com)
