Written and Directed by Shahid Nadeem, Pakistan's leading theatre artist from Ajoka Theatre of Lahore.

This hilarious send-up of US-Pakistani relations set in the Visa Office at the US Embassy in Islamabad explodes stereotypes through satire. This fully-staged workshop production will feature the work of 10 Pakistani artists from Ajoka Theatre as well as Georgetown students and professional guest artists from the DC area and beyond. Ambassador Cynthia Schneider, co-director of the Lab and a Professor in the School of Foreign Service, will appear in the production as the American Ambassador.
