Join The Second Floor (T2F) for an evening of conversation between Imran Yusuf, the writer of ‘Stumped’ and Saad Shafqat, neurologist, novelist and cricket writer.
Stumped, a play about the cricket team of a fictional country called Kabristan, won NAPA’s first ever playwriting competition this year. The story involves match fixing, masculinity, national pride, dishonour, good jokes and bad language.
- Imran Yusuf was born in London and studied tragicomedy both the easy way (the works of Chekhov) and the hard way (living in Karachi). His current day job is writer for an engineering website, even though he can’t change a flat tyre. He is married and has a cat called Damnit.
- Saad Shafqat was born in Karachi and is Professor and Head of Neurology at Aga Khan University Hospital. He writes for ESPNcricinfo and co-authored Cutting Edge, Javed Miandad’s autobiography. His first work of fiction, a medical thriller called Breath of Death, was published in 2013.
