JASHN SAHWAN KA: A FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY THEATRE
11th July to 4th August 2019
NAPA’s summer theatre series, Jashn Sahwan Ka features the new generation of theatre stars: talented emerging directors and exciting young actors in contemporary plays on highly relevant topics staged in a fresh and engaging manner.
Lights Out, directed by Fawad Khan:
Every night, Laila and Rahat hear screams coming from the compound next to their apartment building. Laila wants her husband, Rahat, to report the screams to the police. Rahat does not believe the screams are as loud as Laila makes them out to be, nor are they worth reporting. They hear the screams night after night, and turn out their lights out of fear. What’s happening outside? Are the screams real? Is a crime being committed?
Heer Project, directed by Zain Ahmed:
The tale of Heer Ranjha from the viewpoint of Heer, incorporating modern poetry, dance and music to retell the iconic love story from a feminist perspective.
Praise for Heer:
“One of the most remarkable original works to come out of the Karachi theatre scene. It’s feisty, hard-hitting and above all incredibly entertaining and relevant” – The Express Tribune
Dead End, directed by Sunil Shanker:
An adaptation of David Mamet’s masterpiece Glengarry Glenn Ross, Dead End revolves around real estate agents who are trying to survive in a brutal, competitive and dishonest market. The salesmen work at a real estate company called Dream Ambassadors, selling properties. This is a crucial month and whoever makes the most sales will win a new car. The competition is on but then events take a dramatic turn.
Pooja, directed by Uzma Sabeen:
A musical love story. Two best friends fall in love with the same girl. They make a pact that neither will pursue her, but changing circumstances bring her back into their lives. Pooja is a story of love, faith and betrayal.
