SO MUCH DRAMA

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

The Junc­tion at Al Serkal Av­enue is pre­sent­ing Mian Biwi aur Wa­gah (Hus­band, Wife and the Wa­gah Border), an Urdu play to­day and to­mor­row (right). Based on a series of let­ters, the play evokes nos­tal­gia about the lost art of let­ter-writ­ing while ex­plor­ing his­tor­i­cal and so­cio-po­lit­i­cal el­e­ments through the story of a hus­band-wife duo and the per­son­i­fied Wa­gah border (the border be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan) who is the nar­ra­tor. Tick­ets cost Dh100; show starts at 7.30pm on both days.

From stage to the big screen, mar­i­tal drama con­tin­ues with Eleanor Ford Cop­pola’s film Paris Can Wait (above) that’s show­ing at Cinema Akil from to­day un­til Au­gust 17. The film cen­tres on a jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery made by Anne, played by Dianne Lane, dur­ing a seven hour food-fu­elled road trip from Cannes to Paris that her inat­ten­tive movie-pro­ducer hus­band (played by Alec Bald­win) is un­able to join her on. The film is the di­rec­to­rial de­but of 81-year-old Eleanor (wife of Fran­cis Ford Cop­pola) and her first screen­writ­ing ven­ture. En­try is free but Cinema Akil ac­cepts con­tri­bu­tions at the gate. Show starts at 9.30pm on all days; visit cin­e­maakil.com
