The White Plague

Embark on a thought-provoking journey with The White Plague – presented by Bodhicitta Works in association with Arts Council Pakistan, Karachi – an adaptation of Czech playwright Karel Capek’s 1937 play.

This timeless story, a prescient tale of a world grappling with both war and a mysterious pandemic, resonates today more than ever. The play, originally set against the backdrop of World War 2, draws chilling parallels to the present, making it a powerful and universal narrative.

Directed by the talented Meher Jaffri, The White Plague is a satire rooted in resistance, prompting us to reflect on the profound questions of belonging, ownership, society, and the impact of (mis)information.
