Experience the power of immersive theatre with The Darkroom 2.0 in Kolkata
Sadat Hasan Manto’s heart-wrenching tale of the partition, Khol Do, will pull you down to the dark alleys of the controversial writers’ heart in a way that you have never experienced before.
Imagine sitting blindfolded and listening to the whispers and wails of Sakina. Imagine getting familiar with her scent, becoming her friend and changing her destiny. Imagine being a part of the story. Imagine being the story.
