Country’s most-staged play ‘Konjush’ at Shilpakala Academy today

DL DESK, DHAKA
Country’s most-staged play ‘Konjush’ at Shilpakala Academy today

Loko Natyadal (Siddheshwari) will stage the 718th show of its highly praiseworthy production ‘Konjush’, the most-staged play in the country, at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital today.

Based on playwright Molière’s world-famous satirical comedy, ‘The Miser’, ‘Konjush’ has been adapted and dramatised by noted theatre personality-actor Tariq Anam Khan and directed by Liaquat Ali Lucky. Through situational satire, humour and crude slapstick, ‘Konjush’ weaves the story of two families living in Old Dhaka. The story of miser Haider Ali brings out some hidden negative tendencies of the elite people in a comic way. To make the play enjoyable, Tariq Anam used the typical Dhakaia dialect (a mixture of Bangla and Urdu).

The story of the play goes forward sketching a sixty-year-old, very miserly person, Haider Ali. He has a big amount of money hidden in a pot in his garden. Kazim is in love with neighbour Marjina, while Laili has a relationship with Bodiuzzaman, son of Haider’s friend Aslam Beg.

The plot of the play comes to a climax when Haider Ali himself plans to marry Marjina. Meanwhile, another dramatic situation creates itself when Haider Ali’s hidden money gets stolen and the blame is falsely put on Bodiuzzaman by Kala Mia, the cook and rickshaw-puller of Haider.

Tickets will be available in front of the hall before the show. For advance ticket, one can contact at 01631703152 or 01921139711.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, today
