Famous actress, playwright and women activist Madeeha Gauhar is no more
LAHORE (92 News) – Renowned actress, playwright, and women activist Madeeha Gauhar has passed away in Lahore today (Wednesday). She was 61.
The founder of Ajoka Theatre was battling with cancer for the last three years. Madeeha Gauhar was born in Karachi on 1956.
A brave woman, she was known for her commitment to theatre for social change.
In 1983 she founded Ajoka Theater where social themes are staged in theaters, on the street and in public spaces. With Ajoka she has performed in Asia and Europe.
