Apartment #746, that ‘Hot Mess’
Only, the Sheikh doesn’t show up and an electrician comes over instead with the same name and hence is mistaken for him by everyone in the mad house. Yes, by then the apartment #746 is flooded with everyone not supposed to be there from the flamboyant gay flying down a night earlier and luckily enough (or not so) is unable to see how the furniture in the house has been stolen from his place in the dark, to a middle-aged woman from next-door all smitten by the heroine’s father - the dashing army higher-up (and vice versa) to another girl the hero is cheating on his supposed wife-to-be with, its an all-out hot mess!
Trails of loud laughter kept rolling in the hall, thanks to the hilarious physical-comedy, overt reactions by the artists and thoroughly amusing dialogues thrown our way back to back. Apartment #746 by Stage Nomad Productions is the Urdu adaptation of Peter Shaffer's play Black Comedy. It’s playing till August 19, 2018 at FTC, Karachi and is one’s time well-spent.
