Mandi Theater presents maestro Javed Siddiqui’s acclaimed play RAAT on Saturday, March 2nd at the Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg.
Bold, authentic and gripping - this electric three character drama, directed by Salim Arif, Raat exposes the atrocities committed by the police, with the support of their political bosses, on activists in their custody. The horrifying physical and psychological damage inflicted on the victims is as telling as in any kind of oppressive system. The play wields a heavy mallet, but it does so with purpose and precision.
Each year Mandi Theater brings in thought provoking play/s under - WINGS, celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe.
WINGS, an acronym for Women Inspire, Nurture, Give and Support, to invite women to bring their stories of struggle, oppression as well as success in the form of monologues or skits. Initiated in March 2017. This event is to discuss universal issues that affect women and to create a platform where women are invited to present societal concerns & issues via stories and mono-acts.
