New Delhi, Jun 7 (PTI) "Mashriqi Hoor", a Parsi theatre style play depicting the life of a woman and her loyalty towards the poor, will be staged here at the Shri Ram Centre on June 11.

Directed by Parsi theatre veteran Zafar Sanjari, the play, performed in a mix of Hindi and Urdu languages, is a tale of victory of good over evil. It is presented by Delhi-based Black Pearl Arts in collaboration with Parzor Foundation.

"In 1976, after the closure of the last Parsi theatre group, I came to Mandi House and has witnessed the changes that Parsi style form had gone through. With few other popular modes of entertainment, it became rather challenging for the Parsi theatre artists to hold the audience," said Sanjari in a statement.
