Mumbai: Naseeruddin Shah's play ‘Aurat! Aurat!! Aurat!!!' comes to NCPA
NCPA in collaboration with Motley presents ‘Aurat! Aurat!! Aurat!!!’. Directed by renowned Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah and written by Ismat Chughtai, the play features the work of talented artists Seema Pahwa, Bhavna Pani, Trishla Patel, Jaya Virlley, Prerna Chawla, Shruti Vyas, Saahil Vaid and Dhruv Karla.
An all-female cast enacts selections from Ismat Chughtai’s autobiography, and three other writings (Ek Shauhar Ki Khaatir, Aadhi Aurat Aadha Khwab, and Soney Ka Anda), which are essays rather than stories, reflecting Ismat apa’s abiding concern for the state of womanhood, her impatience with empty rituals and her anger at the condescension women are subjected to.

Where: Experimental Theatre, NCPA
Price: Rs. 450 onwards
