What’s On in Karachi – 13th – 19th February 2015

Another busy week in Karachi, with lots going on including screenings of the big Cricket World Cup India/Pakistan match on Sunday. With Valentine’s Day over the weekend, restaurants are booked solid so good luck if you haven’t made a reservation. There are various private balls and parties for Valentine’s Day but if you’re sick of the sight of hearts, there’s plenty else to do in town.

Anwar Maqsood Ka Dharna

Anwar Maqsood ka Dharna
Anwar Maqsood Ka Dharna is on till 18th Feb at The Arts Council

This week is the last chance to see Anwar Maqsood Ka Dharna at The Arts Council. “Anwar Maqsood Ka Dharna” is yet another magnum opus by the master of satire and humour, Mr. Anwar Maqsood, brought to you by KopyKats Productions. This play set in background of the current political instability of the country, the fickleness of the prevalent situation, the accusations against the electoral system and the in-vogue “dharney”. Laugh-out-loud funny.
