Tibetan Play with English Subtitles

An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Tibet Theatre & TIPA

Pah-Lak (Tibetan for “father”) was originally an English play. Based on intensive research, it is an examination of the future of non-violence. The play focuses on the role of Buddhism in the lives of Tibetans and the dichotomy of the resistance movement that has emerged from decades of oppression, discrimination and marginalisation.

The play has been written by the author and renowned Indian playwright Abhishek Majumdar between 2013 and 2019 in Tibet and in collaboration with the Tibetan community in exile. Pah-la premiered on 3rd April 2019 at Royal Court Theatre, London, with support from Reimagine India, Arts Council England. The Tibetan director and head of the initiative Tibet Theatre, Lhakpa Tsering, the German theatre director Harry Fuhrmann and Majumdar have now created a new Tibetan production of Pah-Lak with Tibetan artistes in 2022-23 in collaboration with the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA).
