An important inspiring story of heroism that was left out of the history books. Did you know that Indians played a vital part in the allied victory of WW2? Did you know that an Indian princess fought the Nazis?
Meet NOOR INAYAT KHAN, Sufi Royalty turned British spy, thorn in Hitler’s side & the Gestapo’s worst nightmare.
Now cornered by the Nazis with nothing but death assured to her, in her final moments she will remind us, who she is, why she matters and why she will always be a part of history. She fought alongside her enemy, the British, to fight a greater threat – the evisceration of life as we know it.
The Nazis never forgot her name, and after tonight’s show, you won’t, either. In this award winning, critically acclaimed show, Indian-Thai actress/writer, Almanya Narula makes her Off- Broadway stage debut as Noor Inayat Khan. A thrilling imagining of the last minutes of her life before execution by Nazis, her final choices will change the outcome of a war we thought we knew everything about.
“Extremely compelling. Almanya Narula is one of those actors who you can’t take your eyes off of…I felt very privileged to see it.” – Taylor Kass (Stage Raw, Los Angeles)
“Noor Inayat Khan: The Forgotten Spy is a memorable, thoughtful piece of theatre about a woman who resisted peacefully, courageously and for a singular purpose.” – Dana Martin (Pearls Before Swine)
“This was one of the best one-person plays I had the opportunity to watch. Equal parts heartbreaking and inspiring. If you can snag a ticket…run, don’t walk” – Michael Reyes (Mike Check)
