Pakistan Theatre Festival 2023, presented by Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi will showcase play Kaun Hai Yeh Gustakh.
Kaun Hai Yeh Gustakh – Comedy
“Kaun Hai Yeh Gustakh,” a thought-provoking Urdu play written by Shahid Nadeem. Set against the backdrop of societal constraints and personal battles, the play intricately weaves a narrative of struggle and self-discovery. The story revolves around characters navigating the complexities of their identities, challenging norms, and confronting the idea of ‘otherness.’ Through powerful dialogues and evocative scenes, the play delves into the transformative journey of its characters, shedding light on the resilience of the human spirit and the quest for acceptance. As the story unfolds, “Kaun Hai Yeh Gustakh” invites audiences to contemplate the boundaries of tradition, the pursuit of authenticity, and the meaning of true liberation.

Ajoka, as the name suggests (Aaj ka, of today), is all about contemporaneity, about a commitment to stay relevant, meaningful, responsive to the challenges of the times. But it addresses contemporary issues through innovative, entertaining and indigenous forms and its impact is much more than a screeching newspaper headline or a news feature. This has been the story of Ajoka’s 39 years’ journey. Ajoka has remained nonpartisan in Pakistan’s turbulent and bewildering politics but it is proudly partisan on the side of secularism, social justice, human rights and peace. Its plays have addressed issues such as religious extremism, gender injustice, human rights and regional peace. Ajoka’s contribution to the cause of socially meaningful theatre has been widely recognized in Pakistan and abroad.
