A play titled ‘The Man on a Black Horse’, written by Rouvan Mahmood and directed by Ali Junejo took the audience to a realm where the line between the profound and the bizarre gets delightfully blurred.
The play oscillated between surrealistic realisations and peculiar interpretations of fact and fiction, and managed to keep the audience, which had turned up in a thin number because of the volatile city situation, engaged throughout the 90-minute duration of the drama.
It is about two soldiers, Sal (Rouvan Mahmud) and Rumi (Ali Junejo) experience life, love and loss. A mysterious woman, Lisa (Meher Jaffri) keeps memories of their lives alive, and at the same time pushes them to revisit what it is that they have done.
Inspired by the writings of Ferdowsi, Rumi, Galczynski and Erich Fromm.–(Photos by Nadir Siddiqui and Text by Peerzada Salman)
