Get yourself Eid-ready with all the pampering you can get at Mint Beauty Solutions’ Self-Care Sunday. Learn the art of turning paper into flowers from Tasneem Sheikh at T2F. And calling all mummies (to give the daddies a breather), head over to Candy Club to spend precious moments painting with your child – before you know it, you’ll be sending them off to university. All this and more – it’s an eventful week ahead.

The Mousetrap is a play written by Agatha Christie which opened in London’s West End in 1952. It holds the record for being the longest running play in the history of theater, with an astounding 27, 000+ performances over 65 years. But the mousetrap is not only a gripping story designed by a playwright who essentially invented this genre of work, it is also a timeless classic, a challenging performance and the perfect fit for us to set the tone for what Gaslight Company really is.

Zambeel presents Kahaani Kahi Ik Jalay Perh Nay

Kahaani Kahi ik Jaly Perh Nay is based on a Japanese tale written by Kijima Hajime, adapted for theatre by Manu Bharati and translated into Urdu by Khalid Ahmad. The Urdu adaptation saw its first iteration in 1992 as a theatre production staged by the first two batches of the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. It now comes to life as a reading presented by Zambeel Dramatic Readings. Set in a jungle inhabited by monkeys, the story speaks of freedom of speech, manipulation and oppression. With a Queen who wishes to be immortalised and an artist who refuses to speak anything but the truth, the story advocates the artist as the true conscience of a society, whose voice, if silenced, can lead to the destruction of the society.
Zambeel Dramatic Readings is entirely grateful to Zaheer Kidwai for his assistance with the music of the play.Visit page for more info: Saturday, 3rd August 2019
Time: 07:30 PM – 09:00 PM
Venue: Faraar Gallery, T2F
Entry: Rs. 500/- (Available at the venue)
