Behna, by Kali Theatre, is a unique theatre production taking part in several houses across the Black Country. As guests arrive for an Indian wedding, truths are told and secrets are uncovered between two generations of sisters.


Behna, is a play based in a Punjabi household set the day before a Indian family wedding. As the guests are busy eating, singing and dancing, tension is brewing in the kitchen. Truths are told and secrets unfold between two generations of sisters. Having been described by The Guardian as 'the most inventive piece of theatre I've seen this year, much is anticipated of this intriguing and site specific production. Fast-paced, funny and moving, Behna looks through the keyhole of a family home to reveal secrets and lies. After the success of Behna in Birmingham, the unique production will be heading to the kitchen of a house in West Bromwich in March and April, creating a unique, intimate and lively piece of theatre. The full venue address will be revealed once a ticket has been purchased. The play begins at 7.30pm (except on Sundays when it begins at 5.30pm).
