Prachyanat to stage ‘Kinu Kaharer Thetar’ at Shilpakala Wednesday

Theatre troupe Prachyanat will stage its 15th production ‘Kinu Kaharer Thetar’ at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital on July 18.

Written by Manoj Mitra and directed by Kaji Taufiqul Islam Imon, the play revolves around an imaginary country named Putna, where the minister of state of Putna has abused a woman. The governor general says, ‘If it is not settled by law, the throne will be seized’. The king is now in trouble, the minister of state is his best friend, so how can he submit him to have 14 slams of whip? He advises the minister to find out someone who will come to the court and state that he is the actual one to do the bad thing, not the minister, so that the punishment will be delivered to him. Jagadamba hands her husband Ghontakarna to the minister in exchange of four bags of money.

Since then, all thieves, robbers, marked criminals have gathered in line at Ghontakarna’s yard, with bags of money; they do the evil, punishment goes to ‘punishment receiving officer’ Ghontakarna. Jagadamba is happy that her husband has learnt to earn money. The king is happy for the throne is saved. The minister of state is happy, because there is no problem of law and order. Peace is everywhere, but it doesn’t continue as easily. The king suddenly gets accused of murder of a goat. The intelligent governor general submits him to be hanged. The king says, “What is to worry for? I have monthly payee servant Ghontakarna- Go, Ghontakarna, stand up on the dice and get hanged.” Then what happens?

The play is a satirical play, where Putna kingdom depicts Bangladesh. The king, governor general, minister of state, Ghontakarna reminds us of the government, opposition, judiciary systems and the common people.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, July 18
