English Biscuit Manufacturers (Pvt.) Limited (EBM) has invited bloggers to watch theatre play Siachen – written by Anwer Maqsood, directed by Dawar Mehmood and produced by Kopykats Production. Siachen is a story about our bravest soldiers stationed at the world’s highest battlefield.
Play starts with the introductory speech by Dr.Zeelaf Munir, CEO of EBM as they are the official partners of this play while Anwer Maqsood explains the idea behind Siachen.
The auditorium was filled with audience, everyone was excited to watch this play. It starts with soldiers leaving their family. There are some emotional moments that can make you cry and then there are some witty jokes where you can’t stop laughing like ‘ek sardar tha aur woh bohat zaheen tha‘ meaning ‘there was a Sardar and he was intelligent’. Cricket jokes are the best. At times it reminds me of Alpha Bravo Charlie. From beginning to the end the audience was in fits of laughter. Very well scripted and young cast has done their best. The play was ended with a standing ovation by the audience.
Siachen is running till first week of February, more info can found here.
