Prangonemor, one of the leading theatre troupes in the country, is going to stage its 13th production titled ‘Hasonjaner Raja’ today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Based on the life of famous Bengali poet, mystic philosopher and songwriter from Sylhet Hason Raja, the play has been written by eminent writer Shakoor Majid and directed by Ananta Hira. The different roles of the play will be played by Ramiz Razu, Awal Reza, Mainul Tawhid, Sagor Roy, Shuvechchha Rahman, Jewel Rana, Asha, Prokriti, Preeti, Sujay, Niru, Sumon, Badhon and Ruma.

Fayez Jahir has designed the stage for the play, while popular singer Selim Chowdhury is the music advisor and music of the play is planned by Thandu Raihan.

To note, born on 21 December in 1854 at Rampasha of Bishwanath in Sylhet, the father of Hason Raja was Dewan Ali Raja, a direct descendant of Birendraram Singhdev (Raja Babu Khan). Hason Raja spent most of his childhood in Rampasha with his mother, Hurmuth Bibi. Later on, his unique style of music made him one of the most prominent figures in Bengali culture.
