Play staged at GC University

Lahore:February 22:Ajoka Theatre staged its Punjabi play Anni Maee Da Sufna (dream of a blind woman) at Government College University, Lahore Bukhari Auditorium in collaboration with the university's Dramatic Club. Written by old Ravian Shahid Mehmood Nadeem, the play explored the human dimension of partition underscoring the anguish of those who kept the memories of their past alive. It highlighted that the partition of the Subcontinent left behind it a long trail of conflicting narratives marked with blood, tears and/or faded smiles. Directed by another old Ravian Madeeha Gohar, the play was enacted by a galaxy of talented actors from the age group of 20's to 80's. The play was punctuated with apt verses of Punjabi Sufi poets which highlighted the great humanising agent i.e. love. GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah also watched the play and appreciated the hard work of young artists. Speaking on the occasion, the oldest living Ravian actor, Arshad Sahab, who played Dada Ge in the play, recalled his mentor Safdar Mir who had inculcated in him the love of theatre back in 1953 when he was a young student at Government College.The news.
