The Husbands — Soho Theatre

Written by Sharmila Chauhan
Directed by Janet Steel

An explosive new play about love, jealousy and a woman’s right to choose.

It’s Aya’s wedding day. Her third. Her current two husbands aren’t too fussed. In a society in which there are few women, that’s just what happens. But as the household prepares for the wedding feast, a stranger arrives – one who threatens to challenge everything they believe in.

Against a backdrop of modern rural India, Sharmila Chauhan weaves an extraordinary tale of love and wonder. From the preparation of luxury food and the sacrifice of the lamb to the dressing of the bride and the dance to end all dances, this will be an exuberant, joyful and challenging piece of theatre.

The Husbands opens on 11th March and ends on 23rd March, 2014.
