Play: Manto Ki Roomaniyat by Storycentre Stage
The show consists of 3 light-hearted one-act plays written by Saadat Hasan Manto revolving around his idea and critique of love, romance, and life. A brief synopsis of each play is as below:
A young woman, whose lover has committed suicide because they were not allowed by her uncle to marry, decides to commit suicide herself, looking to emulate laila-majnu, heer-ranjha and iconic romantic couples alike.
2. Kamra No. 9
Sheereen stays with her brother in a community building, where a new tenant has come to stay in Room no. 9. Sheereen gets increasingly intrigued and attracted by this mysterious man, whose identity she’s been unable to figure. Sheereen is usually visited by a lot of suitors ready to propose marriage to her, but she has rejected all of them. Will Sheereen find out the identity of the man in Room No. 9?
3. Rooh ka Naatak
Three existences of the soul: Rational existence, Emotional Existence, and Eternal Existence, along with a big heart, are on stage. Emotional and Rational existences are in conversation with each other while also instructing the heart to beat their own different ways, while the Eternal existence is sleeping. They project to each other their ideas of love, romance, and marriage in a duel of one-upmanship. Who will prevail?
