ISLAMABAD: A satire “Siasat @ 8pm” by Theatre Wallay will entertain Islooites from January 4 to 6, highlighting the way media, prominent politicians and social workers deal with current issues.”Siasat @ 8 pm”, with well-known host AD Chaudhry discusses some of the current issues of society with eminent guests. It is the latest production of Theatre Wallay that focuses on the absurdity of the prime time talk shows and the political leaders. The play consists of two acts. First act focuses on traditional political leaders, while the second act focuses on the set of new or emerging leaders. Both the groups claim that they are worried about the poverty stricken masses, and want to change it. “Siasat @ 8PM” puts their claims in perspective, and shows what is right or wrong with them. Theatre Wallay is a non-commercial group of artists with a passion for theatre and literature. Active in Islamabad since 2005, Theatre Wallay has put up many performances of plays hailing from world literature. One of their original productions, the acclaimed ‘Daagh Daagh Ujala’ (This Stained Dawn), toured the United States in 2015. The group is also involved in ‘Theatre for Social Change’ projects and works to promote the use of creative expression as a tool for empowerment and critical dialogue.
