Toba Tek Singh- A solo play by Mohit Sharma
April 22 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm
Bombay, Baroda, Bangalore & Delhi: 60+ shows of this solo performance based on Sadat Hasan Manto’s famous short-story set in the backdrop of India’s partition.
India & Pakistan decide to exchange their mental asylum inmates on religious basis. As this news breaks inside a Lahore asylum, what follows is funny and absurd. The inmates ask all the right and relevant questions, but they are ‘certified’ mad by the majority.
One among them Bishen Singh is seeking the ‘current’ whereabouts of his homeland, Toba Tek Singh. But nobody knows; not even the God. On the day of exchange he refuses to budge, till he gets a clear answer. What follows leaves both the countries stunned!
