A grand musical about lunatics and politics

By Saadat Hasan Manto, adapted for the stage by Sujit Saraf, in Hindi with supertitles in English

It is 1948. The governments of India and Pakistan decide that, as has happened with the rest of their population, lunatics in their mental asylums must be exchanged. Muslim lunatics in India are to be sent to Pakistan, while Hindu and Sikh lunatics in Pakistan will be sent to India. In an asylum in Lahore, a Sikh lunatic whom everyone calls Toba Tek Singh refuses to go. Based on Saadat Hasan Manto’s celebrated short story, Toba Tek Singh is a grand musical – performed with live music and dance, fascinating sets and costumes – that observes the madness of Partition through the eyes of a madman, and lays bare its agony through humor, tragedy, and the silly antics of lunatics.
