Theatre Art Unit to stage ‘Amina Sundari’ today

Theatre Art Unit will stage the 81st show of its much-acclaimed production ‘Amina Sundari’ today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Late SM Solaiman dramatised the play ‘Amina Sundari’ from the 300-year-old folk tale of Bheluya Sundari, periodically theatricalised there by various hands since the 1960s. The play is directed by Rokeya Rafique Baby which describes the heroine’s loyalty to her husband who sailed to Myanmar, where he deceptively remarries.

Even though the story is 300 years old, it’s still the persistent reality of almost all women and households in the male dominated society. This is why Amina Shundari has been presented as the story of thousands of women, has been portrayed by three Aminas rather than one.

The cast of the play includes Selim Mahbub, Kamruzzaman Millat, Sangita Chowdhury, Farida Lima, Shilpi Chowdhury, Hasnat Prodip and others.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7:30pm, today
