Play highlights plight of death row prisoners

Play highlights plight of death row prisoners

LAHORE

Justice Project Pakistan, Ajoka Theatre Pakistan, Highlight Arts and Complicite staged Intezaar, The Wait, on Thursday at Forman Christian College, an immersive theatre piece built upon the real-life accounts from Pakistan’s 8000-strong death row. 

The play has been directed by Dina Mousawi of Complicite, produced by Ryan Van Winkle of Highlight Arts and written by Shahid Nadeem of Ajoka Theatre. The characters of ‘Intezaar’ walked the audience through their miserable existence and how their resilience and courage help give a purpose to their otherwise meaningless lives. Intezaar demonstrates the structural flaws inherent to Pakistan’s criminal justice system. 

Intezaar is a unique project which has brought together four organisations from Pakistan and the United Kingdom all committed to the cause of human rights and socially meaningful art.

The theatre piece will be staged again in Rawalpindi at the National College of Arts on April 10 and in Faisalabad at Government College on April 11.
