Azad Theatre a Street Theatre Roaming in Multan

Azad Theatre: giving theatre in Lahore a new voice

To date, Azad Theatre has done a number of street theatre productions, touring cities such as Lahore, Sialkot, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Multan, Abbotabad, Haripur and Peshawar. They have also adapted a number of original scripts as well as worked on the Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop’s plays. In all, they have staged almost 12 major productions. Ansari said that he and his team were immensely proud of this achievement because “no other new theatre company has been able to achieve this milestone in such a short span of time”.
One of the most unique and interesting performances by this theatre company included its adaptation of Shiv Kumar Batalvi’s poetry. It is a play based on the concept of justice and speaks against a rape case in Lahore.
