Two popular plays on Shilpakala stage today

Two popular plays ‘Kaal Ratri’ and ‘Irsha’ by two prominent theatre troupes will be staged today evening at two separate venues of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA), Segun Bagicha in the capital. Padatik Natya Sangsad will stage their Liberation War-based play ‘Kaal Ratri’ today at 7pm at the Experimental Hall of BSA, while Prangone Mor will stage their notable play ‘Irsha’ at the BSA’s National Theatre Hall at the same time.

Based on Lamisa Shirin Hossain’s story ‘The Lone Survivor’, the play ‘Kaal Ratri’ has been adapted by Tanvir Ahmed and directed by Wahidul Islam. The story encircles the night of March 25, 1971 when the Pakistani military killed thousands of innocent Bangladeshis. The play unfolds as a young girl asks his grandfather, who was a teacher of Dhaka University in 1971, about the war. Through stories and her encounter with a wounded Freedom Fighter, the girl gets to know about the war and its sheer horror. The probable casts of the play include Sakhawat Hossain Shimul, Sanjida Parveen, Mohammad Imran Khan, Ikramul Islam, Jinia Azad, Tasmi Chowdhury, Syeda Shamsi Ara Sayeka and Farhad Sumon, among others.

On the other hand, written by prolific playwright Syed Shamsul Haq and directed by theatre activist Ananta Hira, ‘Irsha’ is the eighth production of Prangone Mor, which falls in ‘musical theatre’, a form of theatre that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The unique features of this experimental play include, this 100-minute drama has only seven dialogues with the longest one is 36-minute long while the shortest one is about 16 minutes. The play portrays the abstract struggles and conflicts between man and man, art and art or even artist and artist. The play also features some complicated human relationships on stage, in an abstract way. The dialogues, through which the play goes forward, do not follow a particular storyline and highlight the beauties of rural Bangla, plenty and greenery of harvesting fields as well as the spirit of the War of Liberation.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha
