Motley's next production AURAT! AURAT!! AURAT!!!

(ISMAT APA KE NAAM III) is all set to take centre stage. It contains segments from Ismat Apa's (Ismat Chugtai) autobiography, and the essays, Ek Shauhar ki Khaatir, Aadhi Aurat Aadha Khwaab & Soney ka Anda.

Naseeruddin Shah says,"One is tempted to believe that the charges of obscenity levelled at Ismat were a smokescreen for what actually riled the orthodoxy then and still does - her insistence on female education, her dismissal of superstition, her irreverence for tradition, her contempt for misogyny and her assertion of her identity as a human. The self appointed custodians of religion attempted in vain to condemn and thus silence her but it is our good fortune that Ismat Apa continued on her merry way all her life, enraging the greybeards with her lacerating observations of life around her."

The new show has an all female cast and will have pieces with multiple characters on stage, unlike the previous versions which were monologues.
