Play Summary

‘Pakistan aur Alzheimer’s is a hilarious presentation of a heart-rending story.
It has been hailed as an unique play as it takes a comic, satirical and fresh look at the ‘Partition’ of the country.

The story unfolds in the form of a 90-year-old man recalling the partition and its immediate as well as long-term repercussions in a funny and factually incorrect manner as he suffers from the Alzheimer’s Disease, making the audiences laugh without pause.

However, in the process the old man’s funny memoirs question a range of stereotypes about the tragic event – its genesis, its causes, its worth and its effects.

It has been written and directed by Dr M Sayeed Alam, reputed for his penchant for humorous and historical plays.

Last but not the least, the play is produced by Pierrot’s Troupe – the theater company credited with giving many new, original and multi award wining entertaining productions to Hindi, Urdu & English Theatre: Ghalib In New Delhi, Maulana Azad, Big B, Ghalib, K L Saigal, Sons of Babur, Ghalib Ke Khat, Shah Jahan –O- Mumtaz, Pakistan Aur Alzheimer’s, To Gandhi Ji With Spelling Mistakes, Sir Iqbal etc.
