Like the battle-turf with which it shares a name, Anwar Maqsood’s upcoming play will focus on the conflicts between the soldiers of two countries who have continually been in a state of war with each other – but this time with a slight twist.

In Anwar Maqsood’s sharp and witty style, the play explores the resentment caused by Pakistani soldiers slaughtering the Gau Mata in front of Indian soldiers who hold the animal sacred.
