A word about Deadwood Dick

Deadwood Dick

The first time Atif spoke about his drama Deadwood Dick, he had me. I’m always interested in such theatre and it’s very few and far between that I get a chance to see theatre these days (regardless of the fact that I’d been myself involved with theatre a few years back). The play was great; I wasn’t expecting it to be that good, frankly. The actors, although amateurs, carried themselves really well. I think the director Rabia Khawar has a future here. However, I was thoroughly disappointed by her own performance. She was okay with her expressions and body language, but she eat words when she spoke; her murmurs were not clearly audible. A few others have the same problem, which is somehow bad for a theatre actor. I think the guy playing Black’n (villain.. why is that I always like villains more?) was the best, so was our charming hero (don’t remember the names). Plus, some pretty faces ;) All in all, it was fun watching that drama filled with intrigue and character. I bet, you won’t have missed out if you knew it was that good. Two more days to go!
