Mein Adakaara Banoongi

Press Conference : Theatre lovers’ Retreat

 When we think of theatre in Pakistan, one name that immediately comes to mind is Katha — a theatre group founded by actor Sania Saeed and her husband, Shahid Shafaat in 1992. The theatre organisation has since then been committed to revive different theatre genres including comedy and childrens’ plays in Pakistan.

With Saeed as the face of Katha, one thing the audience can expect from their plays is quality acting. From her first theatre project Aahat, an Indian script that was reproduced for the Pakistani theatre Prem Kahani, Sania has sure come a long way and is ready to make waves yet again. Saeed is gearing up to take the stage again as Naila Anjum in Mein Adakaara Banoongi. The play is loosely based on British playwright Willy Russel’s play Educating Rita and it is coming back after being staged in 2009 under the banner of KopyKat productions.
