This was a tremendous night organized by Natasha Sinha (LCT3) and Arpita Mukherjee (Hypokrit Theatre Company). Was so honored to be on this panel and meet many many beautiful South Asian theatre artists in NYC. And to get to make cool folks like Aneesh Sheth and Ayad Akhtar laugh at my grumpiness.

Thursday, August 10 | 3pm
Atlantic Stage 2, 330 West 16th St.
Set some time like the 17th century, in some place like Delhi, India, House of Joy tells the story of Hamida, an elite female bodyguard in the Emperor’s Imperial Harem. Faced with an impossible ethical quandary, Hamida tries to help an abused Queen escape the heavily guarded harem, thus risking her life and going against everything she was raised to believe. A swashbuckling action-adventure romance inspired by the legends of Indian history.
