Sania Saeed, Erfan Khoosat, Nimra Bucha and Sarmad Khoosat have paired up for a theatrical play called Absolut Manto-Dramatic Readings in Singapore to be staged on the 22nd of March at Esplanade Recital Hall.
Directed by Kanwal Khoosat, the play is an effort by Olompolo Media and Momentz by Azzah Waseem to pay tribute to Saadat Hasan Manto for his contribution towards arts and culture of Pakistan. The idea behind the play seems very interesting and intriguing and these four powerhouses of talent together will definitely set the stage on fire.
‘Arguably the best Urdu short story writer and writer of realistic prose in South Asia, he was a maverick in a society that did not accept the bitter truths. His contribution to Urdu literature makes him a model for 21st-century writers for plot construction, bitter realism, and whimsical dialogue,’ reads the play’s official description on social media.
