The play is based on Mantos story The License, with certain references from Bertold Brecht story The Job. Both these stories talk about the implication on people in an economy that is industrializing at a fast pace. A man unemployed find a place as a watchman in a factory – parallel to this is the story of a self-employed Tongawala. The sudden death of the provider in both the stories drives the family to the brink of starvation. The loss of the job along with the loss of the husband constantly trails them. The only thing that matters was to salvage the job at all cost. Both in the Job and The License the women adopt a plan that becomes as desperate as the situation. This is framed against short vignettes that are written by Mantos called Sketches, that draw upon the political history against which the story has been contextualised.

DIRECTOR: Neelam Man Singh Chowdhry

ARTISTS: Ramanjit Kaur, Gick Grewal
