About the group
Over the years The Grips Theatre, Karachi has performed more than 50 stage plays written by the late Imran Aslam, which are satirical commentaries on contemporary events in Pakistan, What makes these plays stand out is the fact that they put the finger directly on the pulse of events in Pakistan. The political satires are innovative and hit at the shortcomings of society, the establishment and the people in power, all in a very humorous manner. Although these plays made us laugh at ourselves, yet at no time does Grips lose sight of the fact that Pakistan is our country and we, as a nation, owe it a lot more than what we have given it.
