'Manto...Ismat Haazir Hain' - Produced by Motley and directed by Naseeruddin Shah

This production, the second in Motley’s intended series of presentations on stage of Hindustani stories centers around the word ‘obscene’. Two short stories - BU (Odour) by Saadat Hasan Manto and Lihaal (The Quilt) by Ismat Chughtai, for which both the writers were in the mid-1940’s accused of obscenity and put on in the Lahore High Court - will be presented along with Ismat Apa’s hilarious account of the trial called “in the name of those married women” and another celebrated Manto story, The dog of Titwal.
