Surrounded by lies and deceit how do you work out who is telling the truth?

When highly decorated war hero, Colonel Tariq joins the intelligence agency, his rise to the top seems assured. But during his first case investigating the murder of a young prostitute by a CIA agent, a diplomatic crisis erupts. As the two nations negotiate, angry mobs take to the streets and he is caught up in a national scandal.

Tariq is instructed to instigate a cover up, trapping him in a terrible moral dilemma. As his professional ambition and private life collide, he must make a life changing decision that will have far reaching consequences for the future of his family and his country.

Set against a backdrop of espionage and secret agents, The Dishonoured is a compelling political thriller about surviving in a world of deceit and violence.

Award winning Kali has a reputation for putting challenging issues on stage to create engaging and inspiring new theatre.

“Hold on as the knot tightens” Dominic Maxwell, The Times

“Ahmad brings in a touch of Macbeths alongside her Le-Carré-isms” Dominic Maxwell, The Times

“Aamina Ahmad’s gripping debut play….has plenty of plot twists and turns…. and it builds to a scene of real tension” The Guardian

“This taut tale has all the ingredients of a political thriller – tense negotiations, plot twists and lashings of local colour… black-and-white morality breaks down into more shades of grey than a row of American generals’ heads.” Time Out

“an engagingly knotty second half that shows flawed characters making a choice between competing evils as the personal and the political become inseparable. Much of the acting is excellent….” The Times

“it will have you on the edge of your seat.”

“boldly questions a world in which protecting one’s interests justifies anything.”
British Theatre Guide

“Thrilling, edgy and dramatic” Asiana Magazine

“A particularly impressive script… elevates it out of routine stage territory. Powerful performances and moments of real genius from Director, Janet Steel, had me gripped from start to finish.”

The play has been nominated for the Best New Play Offie Award and David Michaels has been nominated for the Best Male Performance in a Supporting Role
