About Project:

By implementing this project, Thespianz strives to promote the values of peace, respect, interfaith harmony and tolerance among citizens as well as promoted theatre as an art form in the areas (Peshawar & Hazara) where the art has not been flourished as desired. The primary purpose of conducting theatre/motivational workshops and social theatre performances for the youth in both of these areas was to introduce and sensitize youth to the genre of social theatre and encourage interested youth to come forward and adopt theatre professionally.

The Play

The play ‘Kaala Kaar’ performed at seven different locations is a very popular comedy play prepared and performed by Thespianz Theatre. The play is not only entertaining that made the audiences laugh, it was also full of subliminal social messages which it disseminated throughout the length of the performance and ensured inculcating positive values in the citizens with a bout of entertainment. The play has been performed at various locations and has been one of the most successful plays prepared and performed by Thespianz Theatre. The play was solely written, directed and performed in-house.

The Workshops

As a part of this project, Thespianz has organized 7 theatre workshops for an extensive training of theatrical art for the students of seven different colleges/universities of Peshawar & Hazara.

Location Significance:

  • TMUC Islamabad
  • CECOS College Peshawar
  • Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University Peshawar
  • Brains College Peshawar
  • Islamia College Peshawar
  • Iqra University Peshawar
  • Home Economics College Peshawar

The areas which are been chosen to conduct these activities are Peshawar and Hazara region. The Peshawar city, which is the capital of the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is among the biggest cities of the country but is considered conservative when it comes to performing arts due to the cultural and religious influences historically. The Hazara region, which is comprises of seven districts, is even more restricted when it comes to acceptability and opportunities for performing arts. The project, ‘Hum Sab Kala Kaar’, was the project specifically designed for the youth of these two areas as the project provided them the exposure, training and ecosystem to pursue performing arts mediums.

Success Story


Famous pashtoon singer Zeek Afridi better known for his most popular song “Bibi Shiri” attended Thespianz’s project “Hum Sub Kalakaar” performance at Home Economics College, Peshawar University – Peshawar that not just made him very much laugh due to it’s humorous elements but also observe the strong social messages in the play called “Kalakaar”. Zeek said “I very much admire and appreciate the efforts Team Thespianz is putting to convey the very sensitive issues such as transgender rights, women rights and interfaith harmony in a beautiful manner. Here in Peshawar we do not have many arts activities and this project is playing significant part in both arts and social sides of the society”. In the end of the performance he sung his popular song “Bibi Shiri” for the students of the college.
