ISLAMABAD: The feeble market for experimental theatre in Pakistan has not stopped Osman Khalid Butt from exploring the realms of new theatrical grounds. His latest venture, Let Me In, aims to explore the darkness of human mind and how fear can inculcate it in every person.
“The play is very character centric and focuses on how people use others to their advantage,” Butt said at a press conference in a local hotel on Thursday, October 14. The cast and crew of the play were also present on the occasion.
The play, adapted from Stephen King’s novella of the same name, is intended to take “Islamabadi theatre to an uncharted realm of pure, bone-chilling psychological horror”.
Let Me In will be Butt’s fourth play after the successful runs of Some Like It Hot, The Good Doctor and the recent sensation Superstar Avatar.
It premieres on Sunday, October 17 and will run through October 28 at the Pakistan National Council of Arts auditorium in Islamabad.
Butt said, “I wanted to make this production as real as possible. I did not wish it to be merged in with the other solely entertaining musicals and comedies being produced all over Pakistan.”
