“Noor Inayat Khan was born in Moscow in 1914 to an Indian father and an American mother and was raised in England and France. When the family returned to England at the start of WW2, Noor signed up as a wireless operator and became the first female undercover wireless operator to be sent from the UK into occupied France. Her story is told by playwright Azma Dar and director Poonam Brah in a production by Kali Theatre which tells the often-overlooked story of a woman who stood up to fascism and who was posthumously awarded the George Cross.”
Review this show


The enigmatic, indefinable Noor Inayat Khan was an unlikely recruit to the SOE as an undercover wireless operator. How did she face off fascism with such courage and resilience and evade capture longer than any of her counterparts?

Noor’s moving and inspirational story takes us across borders and time into a shadowy world of espionage, as British officer Vera Atkins and Gestapo Major Hans Kieffer trade secrets to uncover the woman behind the code names. From her Sufi mysticism to her astonishing creativity, Noor’s individuality was ultimately her greatest strength.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Critic reviews

A stylish, noirish retelling of a story genuinely so extraordinary you could not have made it up

· The Times

Beguilingly played by Annice Boparai

· The Guardian

Detailed but emotionally uninvolving

· The Stage

As the lead, Annice Bopari excels at wide-eyed innocence

· Everything Theatre

Boparai evokes Khan’s bold spirit

· Evening Standard
