Behud (Beyond Belief) is the latest play by controversial playwright Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti. In December 2004, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti’s play Behzti rocked the world of theatre when it was cancelled after protests in Birmingham. The closure of the play sparked a vehement debate about offence and freedom of speech, as well as death threats for the playwright forcing her to go into hiding.In Behud, a playwright attempts to make sense of the past by visiting the darkest corners of her imaginations. Set amidst the theatre establishment, politicians and protesters,Behud is an imaginative response, inspired by the events surrounding Behzti, and the compelling story of an artist struggling to be heard.

‘…Bhatti writes poetically…’ – Michael Coveney, The Independent

‘Besides being remarkably even-handed in its approach to the various arguments swirling around the divisive play in question, what’s finally striking about the show is its humour, pricking pomposity on all sides.’ – Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph
