Lights Out: A play by Fawad Khan

Join us at T2F to watch Fawad Khan’s directed play “Lights Out” (Playwright: Manjula Padmanabhan)

About the Play:
Every night, Laila and Rahat hear screams coming from the compound next to their apartment building. Laila wants her husband, Rahat, to report the screams to the police. Rahat does not believe the screams are as loud as Laila makes them out to be, nor are they worth reporting. They hear the screams night after night, and turn off their lights, to prevent their windows being broken. What’s happening outside? Are the screams real? Is a crime being committed?

In the Now: A Beginners’ Improv Workshop with Ayesha Tariq


Improv is not just an acting tool, but a tool that can help you succeed in life!

Unlike stand-up, improvisation is theatre without a script. We’ll help you think on the spot and build your confidence in a friendly, fun and supportive space where you’re free to play and be yourself. Over the three-hour workshop, you’ll be collaborating, generating ideas, listening and taking part in character-work, scene-work, improv-games and more!

Join us for an interactive session that’s sure to stretch your imagination and spark spontaneity as you develop core skills.

There is no pre-requisite for this session and anyone can join in – no previous experience of improv, acting or comedy needed. All you’ll need is a sense of fun and curiosity.

Date: 21st September 2019

Time: 5 PM – 8 PM

Venue: British Council Library
