Based on the true story of Mukhtar Mai, who brought her brutal attackers to justice in Pakistan, Mai requested her settlement create schools for girls, so they would not experience the danger of signing their names only with a thumbprint because they cannot read.

The University of Arizona Opera Theater presents Thumbprint by Kamala Sankaram and Susan Yankowitz

Commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects and HERE Arts Center for the 2014 PROTOTYPE Festival.
