Simran: a young Indian woman.
Her boyfriend: Black.
Her family: disapproving.
Her friend: honour-killed.

After a tube journey reflecting on the great philosophical phenomena of the world: the trolley problem, whether sandwiches should be cut down the middle or diagonally, and the validity of tonic water, as well as the friend she lost to honour violence, Simran must answer some life-changing questions: Will she and her boyfriend be able to live happily and safely together? Or will the looming threat of violence and leaving everything they know behind in London cause them to crumble?

Honour-Bound is a one-woman show written and performed by a British South Asian artist, and realised by British Black and South Asian artists. It explores the anti-Blackness that is often found in South Asian communities, the devastating effects it can have, and asks the question: what would you sacrifice for love?
