Mushk ~ Theater Play ~ Curtain Raiser & Giveaway Contest!!

Mushk ~ Fragrance ~ is a new Urdu theater play that brings Sania Saeed and Nimra Bucha together on stage for the first time ever. Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi – peeps this one is a play that should not be missed!

Penned by Rabia Qadir and Seemal Numan and directed by Kanwal Khoosat, Mushk is the story of Sophiya and Zoay. Sophiya is a brilliant novelist who guards her privacy like a hawk. Zoay, on the other hand, is a journalist determined to force her way into Sophiya’s solitude to gain an interview with the reclusive novelist about her latest publication. As events unfold it becomes clear that nothing is at first seemed. Sophiya is holding on to a secret she is unwilling to part with and Zoay knows a lot more than she lets on. What is it that she knows about this novel and it’s novelist?

Ab who is hiding what and why, and how it all pans out yeh tau sab dekhne ke ba’ad hi pata chalega. For now I’ll leave you with the teaser that while the storyline might appear simplistic it is definitely not that. As these two women pare away each other’s lies and evasions, their interactions reveal an increasingly complex pattern in an apparently simple melody. Journeying through the story these characters realize the meaning of love. Mushk plays with the idea that individuals are inherently unknowable. This play is an Olomopolo Media Production.

Mushk opens in Lahore and then travels to Islamabad and Karachi. Dates and venues are as follows:
