Lights Out: A play by Fawad Khan at T2F

Join The Second Floor to watch Fawad Khan’s directed play “Lights Out” (Playwright: Manjula Padmanabhan) followed by a discussion led by the Women’s Action Forum on Wednesday, 31st June!

About the Play:
Every night, Laila and Rahat hear screams coming from the compound next to their apartment building. Laila wants her husband, Rahat, to report the screams to the police. Rahat does not believe the screams are as loud as Laila makes them out to be, nor are they worth reporting. They hear the screams night after night, and turn off their lights, to prevent their windows being broken. What’s happening outside? Are the screams real? Is a crime being committed?
