Theatre troupe Loko Natyadal (Banani) will stage yet another show of its much-acclaimed play ‘Konjush’, an adaptation of the Molière satire ‘The Miser’, today at 7pm at Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital. ‘Konjush’ belongs to the ‘Comedy of Morals’ genre, which is designed to address vices such as hypocrisy, pride, greed, social pretensions and nepotism.

The play is adapted by Tariq Anam Khan and directed by Kamrun Nur Chowdhury. Tariq Anam Khan’s adaptation of the play presents a ‘Dhakaiyya’ (a native of Old Dhaka) protagonist - a rich old man named Haider Ali. Through Haider Ali’s story, ‘Konjush’ attacks the selfish and opportunistic tendencies of the elite.

The cast of the play includes Khairul Alam, Kamrun Nur Chowdhury, Shamshad Begum, Mostofa Anwar Swopon, Zahidur Rahman, Zahid Chowdhury, Abdullah Al Harun, Monika Biswas and others.
