Shahid Nadeem is the foremost and most prolific playwright of Pakistan. This selection of 6 plays is reflective of bold social and political themes and innovative form. While the plays break down barriers by addressing bold themes, there is a strong link with tradition and heritage. These plays have not only established theatre as a legitimate and effective form for dialogue and discourse, but they have also put Pakistan on the theatre map of the world. These plays are fine examples of socially-committed literature which does not compromise the literary and aesthetic elements of the writing. Music, dance, and humour are an integral part of these plays. Even when handling depressing subjects like the trafficking of women in Dukhini, or a serious expression of Sufi thought inBulha, Shahid Nadeem successfully brings in humour to heighten the impact and maintain the audience's interest.
