LATER International

Paines Plough’s late night writing salon, LATER, has gone East.

We’ve invited three Pakistani playwrights to give us their unique view of contemporary life. The result is a surprising and unsettling kaleidoscope of urgent new work inspired by contemporary events:

ABDULLAH by Salman Sahid is a potent and comic exploration of the delicate balance between the wealthy and their servants in a changing political and religious landscape.

FREEDOM PASS by Anita Mir is an explosive and sensitive play about race, identity and the BNP.

GLAD TIDINGS by Bilal Hasan Minto is a taut and heartbreaking vision of one woman’s desperate bid to escape.
