(Ismat Apa Ke Naam – III)
Hindustani Plays (120 mins)
An NCPA presentation in collaboration with Motley
An all-female cast enacts selections from Ismat Chughtai’s autobiography, and three other writings (EK SHAUHAR KI KHAATIR, AADHI AURAT AADHA KHWAB, and SONEY KA ANDA), which are essays rather than stories, reflecting Ismat apa’s abiding concern for the state of womanhood, her impatience with empty rituals and her anger at the condescension women are subjected to.
Written by Ismat Chughtai
Directed by Naseeruddin Shah
