Toba Tekk Singh

The pain and anguish that Saadat Hasan Manto personally experienced as a result of the events of 1947, is poignantly depicted in his short story "Tooba Tek Singh". Along with his masterpiece, Manto's stories "Siyah Hashiyae" and "Khol do" encapsulate the horrors of this monumental tragedy. Ajoka Theatre has brought these stories together in one production. "Toba Tek Singh" takes place in the Lahore Mental Hospital, which it becomes a metaphor for the insanity unleashed by the partitioning of India
