Event Details

Punjabi, Urdu, Hindi Play

An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with The Hoshruba Repertory

Four stories from Ali Akbar Natiq’s short story collection Qaim Deen come together in a play format. Natiq, often called the modern-day Manto, sets these stories in rural western Punjab. The stories attack religious superstition, patriarchy, misogyny and end with a twist which is difficult to pre-empt and often leaves readers shaken in the end. Though dark and sombre in their expanse, the stories are riddled with wit and situational comedy and represent universal human follies.
