Governor General's Award Nominated Play Calgary Premiere 18+ Written by Anosh Irani Directed by Alison Wong Why would a blind man visit an exotic dancer? Set in present-day India, "Bombay Black" is a powerful love story of vengeance, betrayal, and seduction. Apsara resides in Bombay with her mother Padma, making a living by selling erotic dances to wealthy men. When Kamal, a blind man, arrives for an appointment, the lives of Apsara and her embittered mother are altered as their complex and brutal past rises to the surface. Mythic, brave and featuring a remarkable poetic text, bold theatrical imagery and contemporary Bombay bar dancing, "Bombay Black" is a thought-provoking work by one of Canada’s leading playwriting voices.
