Wah! Wah! Girls
Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theatre
In Act 1 Scene 6 of Tanika Gupta’s Wah! Wah! Girls the 25 bus to Hackney Downs turns into a fishing ghat on the river Ganges. The ghat (set of steps) is wheeled off, carpets and hookahs are laid down, nawabs take their seats and a young nautch girl performs a rendition of Rekha’s ‘Dil Cheez’ from the 1981 Bollywood classic Umrao Jaan.
