Hua Kuch Yoon

The play is a fictitious account of two love stories, present day and past, depicting the trials & tribulations of lovers caught up in the revolutionary web, between Pakistan and India. With a humorous angle, it looks at how the lives of people can sometimes be affected by two warring countries.

Presented by KopyKats Productions, the play opens at 5pm on Thursday, Feb 15 and continues until Mar 15 at the Arts Council.
