“People kept saying there’s no smoke without fire, but it’s not our fire is it khala? it’s like we’re just choking on all the fumes…”    

Between the 1990s and 2010s hundreds of young girls were sexually exploited in northern towns by gangs of predatory men.    

Two sisters grapple with the impact on their community as the men around them are embroiled in a sexual abuse scandal.   

Playwright Emteaz Hussain‘s Expendable spotlights the often-overlooked voices of Pakistani women, delving into the shortcomings of law enforcement, politicians, and the media. 

Directed by Esther Richardson. Dramaturg Nazli Tabatabai-Khatambakhsh.
