Description- Mian Biwi Aur Wagah (Urdu/120mins with 10mins interval) Prod. A Goonj Production. Writ. Amna Khaishgi, Ehtesham Shahid, Majid Muhammad. Dir. Dhruti Shah D’souza. Co-director: Sheherzad Kaleem. Dubai’s first and most successful Urdu play Mian, Biwi aur Wagah comes to India! It is a homecoming experience for the lovers of Urdu theatre and the forgotten, intimate tradition of letter-writing. All letters staged are originally written, and based on true stories and experiences. The play’s premise is weaved among three central characters – a journalist wife-husband duo from Karachi (Pakistan) and Bihar (India), who are seen and heard writing letters to their kith and kin from all walks of life, set in different cities, and through a range of varied emotions. At the parallel lies Wagah, the border that separates the two countries, but in essence is the true metaphor for what brings the two people together. The journeys together with the ordinary exchanges, create a series of vivid images and conversations, inviting the audience to a heartwarming rendezvous with letter-writing. Tickets at Rs.600, Rs.400 and Rs.250 available at the Programmes desk, Habitat World, IHC & bookmyshow.com. An Old World Culture Presentation.
