6 Kirdar Aik Musannif Ki Talash Mein is a theatre play by National Academy of Theatre Arts (NAPA). As the name indicates, the story of the play revolves around six characters that are caught up in miseries of their lives. They look up to a writer who can provide complete story to their live happenings. This play is an adaptation of Luigi Pirandello’s ‘Six Characters in Search of an Author” and stars iconic thespian Rahat Kazmi. Fawad Khan, the writer has narrated the account in Urdu language. The roles are played by Rahat Kazmi, Mehr Jafri, Maisam Naqvi, Hammad Sartaj and Mazeen Malik.
The veteran, experienced Rahat Kazmi heads the play. The characters bear the harsh experiences of their lives. They had no place to shed their bitter realities of life. Their stories have no proper flow; hence, they end up performing play at the theatre.
The play depicts the women as a suppressed class, but the problems she has been inflicted with, makes her character important to rise out as a powerful voice. The theatre might seem to make no sense in the beginning, the middle part of the story is also dragging, but the climax is powerful enough to win over appreciation of the viewers.
The play is a reality depicted. Everyone in his or her life tries to adjust with the life issues. We look forward to someone who can narrate our account. Not being contended with what we have presently, we look forward to a bright future.
