The First International Theatre & Dance Festival, was the first of its kind to be held in Pakistan, through the gigantic effort put in by the Rafi Peer Theatre Workshop. Pakistani theatre, over the last forty years, has made a steady progress to warrant the holding of a theatre festival in which companies and groups from all over the world participate and share their creative experiences with the local groups. This proliferation of theatre activity has included comedies and farces, ever so successful commercially, and off beat plays meant for a smaller but a more serious audience.

The Festival comprised plays both of foreign and local theatre companies, exhibition of theatrical masks, puppets, and posters and a series of lectures and workshops on the problems facing theatre in particular and the performing arts in general.
