The Dreams of Tipu Sultan

"The Dreams of Tipu Sultan" is a play written by Indian playwright Girish Karnad. The play has been performed many times but different groups around the world but mostly in the subcontinent mainly in Pakistan and India. The story follows the last days as well as the historic moments in the life of the Ruler of Mysore through the eyes of an Indian court historian and a British Oriental Scolar. The play was recently performed by the Lahore Grammar School Senior Boys Branch at Ali auditorium, Lahore and made its debut on the 24th of April. Major sponsors included FM91, Unilever, NMST and BATA. The play was directed by Omair Rana and co directed by Mr. Nauman Faizi.It was received very warmly and the public turned out in large numbers to see the performance.

The figure of Tippu Sultan has continued to dominate Indian and British imagination for over two centuries, as the endless flow of scholarly works, ballads, plays and novels about his tempestuous life and tragic end testifies. What, however, is less well known is that this man, who spent a large part of his life on horseback, maintained a record of his dreams, which he kept concealed from his nearest associates. The Dreams of Tipu Sultan examines the inner life of this warrior, political visionary, and dreamer.
