Mansha Ki Shaadi: Mansha Ki Shaadi takes the funny route into the life of Dulari Tiwari, a middle-aged Indian housewife, whose daughter Mansha is about to get married. Years of prayers and fasts have finally borne fruit for Dulari but weddings are such fragile things. A riot of laughter and wit, Mansha Ki Shaadi unfolds the delicate drama of mother-daughter relationship. While Dulari is determined to see Mansha settled in a wedlock, Mansha has other plans. Dulari's story is the story of every other household in contemporary India. Using a basic set and traditional wedding music, the play creates the ambiance of a middle-class Indian wedding home. And before we know, we become Baratis, the guests at the wedding.

Kisse Kahani, Ismat Ki Zubaani: Ismat Chugtai and Saadat Hasan Manto were considered some of the most prolific writers in the pre and post-independence era. Most of us have known Ismat and Manto for the intense and incisive stories they wrote. They wrote bold stories that challenged traditional morality and worn-out notions of a woman's 'place' in society. However, unlike Chughtai's homely and colorfully idiomatic language, the Begumatizubaan as it was called, Manto chose a stark, spare, almost staccato style, unembellished and unaffected, deliberately shorn of all appendages of style and convention. Cocking a snook at the niceties of form and content, both fashioned a language that was full-bodied and vigorous, an Urdu that was uniquely capable of expressing a thoroughly modern sensibility. However, very few are aware that they had to face court trial for writing supposedly 'obscene' content in their respective stories Mantos short story 'Boo' and Ismat's 'Lihaaf' drew the ire of the upholders of traditional morality, the former for its unapologetic portrayal of an explicitly sexual encounter between an educated married man and a ghatan girl and the latter for viewing a lesbian relationship between two older women through the eyes of a young girl. Even fewer of us are aware of Ismat and Mantos personalities - how they looked at the world and what they made of it. 'Ismat Manto Azad Mulzim', a rehearsed reading of a compilation of their pieces, allows the audience a peek into their temperaments, their friendship and the rather amusing way in which they dealt with the trial.
