• Khudkushi (Suicide)
It is a satirical short play about Khudkushi who has recently lost her love. And being inspired by Heer-Rajha’s legendary love story, she wants to join her lover in death. Followed by the visit of the spirit of Heer who tells real things about what happens “happily ever after”, Khudkushi may change her mind on all these romantic stories.
