Noor Inayat Khan: The Forgotten Spy
The Sarah Siddons Society presents this Chicago premiere written and performed by Almanya Narula.
Born into an Indian family of Sufi royalty, Noor Inayat Khan is a British spy who fought the Nazis and played an integral role in the allied victory of World War II. In this “heroic and compelling” imagining of the last minutes of her life, Noor’s decisions will forever change the tide of a war we thought we knew everything about. Now cornered by the Nazis, Noor must choose between her betraying her allies or sacrificing her life to save many. In this one act thrill ride, she will remind us who she is, why she matters and why she will always be a part of history. She fought alongside her colonizers, the British, to fight a greater threat – the evisceration of life as we know it.
