About the Show/Event

Information for Bliss/Mutluluk at Arcola, Inner London (Musical). Lake Van, Eastern Turkey. Meryem, a fifteen-year-old rape victim, is accused of shaming her family. Cemal, her cousin, is tasked with an honour killing. But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they encounter Irfan, a troubled professor in search of a new life...
