After a two-year ban on cinemas and theatres alike, the team of Ajoka has decided to make a comeback. In order to suffice for the lack of entertainment, the theatre group will be performing two plays in one day – “Sharam Di Gal” and “Dhee Raniay”.
“Both the plays that will be performed are short,” says the director, Nirvaan Nadeem, also adding that they were originally written almost 25 years ago by Shahid Nadeem and directed by the late Madeeha Gauhar.
However, considering that the situation hasn’t changed much for the women of Pakistan, these plays based on women’s rights are as much relevant today as they were more than two decades ago. This time, the plays will be performed by a whole new team of young actors who have received their training through Ajoka Institute’s “Art of Acting” and will be showcasing their talents for the first time before the audience.
The show will start at 7pm on October 8, the venue being Punjab Institute of Language, Art and Culture.
As per the instructions given by the theatre group, all the attendees will be required to wear masks and bring along their vaccination certificates.
“With theatrical devices rooted in our soil, join us for a refreshing evening of song, dance, colours and meaningful entertainment,” says the team while requesting the interested people to come as early as possible, as limited seats will be available.
