    • A Brechtian look at an Ottoman Burlesque with songs and music, 7 Husbands for Hurmuz tells the story of an alluring woman, Hurmuz who lives in Taşkasap, Istanbul in 1900. She is unofficially married to six guys of different occupations, each of whom she hosts on different days of the week. While refusing them nuptial bliss in her bed, she lures them into giving her expensive presents in order to live on easy terms. One day, Hurmuz happens to see the local doctor Hüsrev while at the barbershop of one of her husbands. She then feigns illness and asks for the doctor. When the doctor falls in love with her too, he requisitions her best friend and matchmaker Safinaz to ask for Hurmuz’s hand. On a night when all the husbands will get together by chance, Hurmuz and her confidante Safinaz find themselves in trouble.
