By Athar Shah Khan
Directed by Farhan Alam
Seth Razzak’s daughter has divorced her husband. Seth Razzak’s fortune is stuck in his daughter and son-in-law’s joint back account – which they can’t access now that they’re divorced. Chased by debtors, Razzak badly needs this money. Will his daughter and estranged son-in-law remarry and get him his money back? Good Luck Darling is a rollicking comedy by famed writer, poet and comedian Athar Shah Khan.

Wapsi – 17th to 19th January 2020
By Noel Coward
Translated & directed by Zarqa Naz
An adaptation of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit. Writer Mansoor and his wife Areeba invite local spirit medium Khanum Batool to hold a seance at their house. Khanum Batool unwittingly brings back the ghost of Mansoor’ first wife, Naureen, to haunt him. Appearing only to Mansoor, Naureen causes all kinds of mischievous trouble between the married couple. Intensely funny and character-driven, Wapsi combines farce, emotion, and wit to great effect.

An adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare’s most popular comedy.

Ushaaq Ke Qaafley: Film Screening + Panel Discussion

Can students spearhead democratic reforms in Pakistan and India?
Film Screening followed by a panel discussion.

Hundreds of thousands of students have taken to the streets in India to protest the controversial ‘Citizenship Amendment Act’ recently passed by the Modi government. Just a month ago in Pakistan several thousand students took part in the massive Student Solidarity March held across the country. Interestingly the student protestors of both countries chanted verses of Faiz Ahmad Faiz and Habib Jalib, carried red flags and also gave space for minority groups within their ranks.

Join us for a screening of short film “Ushhaq ke Qafley” about the history of the democratic student movement in Pakistan, followed by a discussion on the present student movements of both Pakistan and India.
