A play named Khilona is being produced by the Nasty Production in Lahore. They have been in Lahore once before with the same play and it seems Lahoris can’t get enough of them!
Lahore is all about arts and musicals and plays. Things that add color to life. Alhamra Art Centre is doing exactly that. Adding color to Lahore and bringing the arts into the spotlight.
The theme of the play revolves around superstitions. It’s a two-act play and is based on how humans fall under the influence of jinns. The story of the play is full of suspense with background music pieces and light effects added for the suspense.
Now that is SPOOKY!
