Theatre Wallay is a non-commercial group of artists with a passion for theatre and literature. Active in Islamabad since 2005, Theatre Wallay has put up many performances of plays hailing from world literature. One of our original productions, the acclaimed ‘Daagh Daagh Ujala’ (This Stained Dawn), toured the United States in 2015. Our latest project, On Common Ground, toured the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Artists Repertory Theatre Portland in June/July 2017.
The group is also involved in ‘Theatre for Social Change’ projects and works to promote the use of creative expression as a tool for empowerment and critical dialogue. To this end, we conduct regular workshops, readings, trainings and other activities in partnership with local and international organisations. We also conduct theatre education programmes and workshops with students of all ages. Since November 2016, our team has been running a not-for-profit cultural space and community centre, The Farm @ BaniGala. We bank on support and donations from our patrons and audiences to sustain this volunteer-run space which brings quality events for entertainment and discourse to the twin cities.
