ISLAMABAD: The new murder mystery play “Main Ne Kuch Nahi Kiya”, came to its ‘logical’ and slightly amusing end in the federal capital on Sunday after curtains were drawn on the last of its two-day showings.
The play had been jointly arranged by Islamabad-based theatre company TheatreWallay and Rung School after staging two shows at The Farm.
The play had been jointly developed by nine students who had taken acting classes with TheatreWallay earlier this year. The three-month-long theatre course had started in February and ended in May during which the acting students were mentored by the company’s director.
They co-wrote the light murder mystery which kept the audiences on their toes and made them keep guessing about the identity of the murderer until the very end of the show.
The writers also tried to incorporate a blend of different themes of societal issues including love, loyalty, insensitivity of media and momentarily pleasures. The show received moderate attention from twin cities by those who love art and theatre. Young thespians also displayed their acting skills in an exhibition of their talents.
“We conduct regular workshops, readings, training and other activities in partnership with local and international organizations. We also conduct theatre education programmes and workshops with students of all ages,” said TheatreWallay Director Safeerullah Khan.
