Success Story

14 years old Sakina Imtiaz matriculation student from Islamabad couldn’t resist to tell us how much she liked the play and the Flashmob for raising awareness about anti-piracy. She stated I even did not know that our book even can be pirated and the source which is giving us education itself can be scammed and harm the original publisher. Thespianz team has delivered this message to us in a very engaging and entertaining way through their beautiful mascot characters and strong story-line which we cannot forget in our entire life and implement the piracy evaluation we learned in this play for any book we will purchase ever.” Except Sakina, there were a number of students and youngster reflecting the same school of thought after witnessing the play and the flashmob under “Chulbuk Chori” project.
