The 12th edition of ‘Dhaka University Central Annual Theatre Festival’, organised by Theatre and Performance Studies Department of Dhaka University (DU), has begun at the TSC (Teachers' and Students' Centre) Auditorium of DU yesterday. DU Vice Chancellor Professor Dr Akhtaruzzaman inaugurated the festival yesterday, while Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor was present as chief guest.

After the inauguration, the weeklong festival opened with the Tagore's play ‘Chandalika’ directed by Sadia Mahbub Sara. Later on, ‘Neel Danshan’, a play based on the novel of Syed Shamsul Haq and directed by Moniruzzaman Ripon, was staged in the same evening.
