Country’s most-staged play ‘Konjush’ to see 700th show today

Loko Natyadal’s (Siddeswari) much-acclaimed and most-staged play in the history of country’s theatre arena titled ‘Konjush’ will see its 700 show today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA), Segun Bagicha in the capital. Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor will attend the show as chief guest, while French Ambassador to Bangladesh Marie-Annick Bourdin, noted theatre personality Ataur Rahman, Professor Abdus Salam, director-writer-producer Tariq Anam Khan will be present as special guests. Based on playwright Molière’s world famous satirical comedy ‘The Miser’, ‘Konjush’ has been adapted and dramatised by noted theatre personality-actor Tariq Anam Khan and directed by Liaquat Ali Lucky.

The play premiered on May 8 in 1987. Then the play saw its 100th show on February 12, 1993, 200th show on December 5 in 1994, 300th show on July 11 in 1997, 400th show on September 21 in 2001, 500th show on December 29 in 2006 and 600th show on April 21 in 2012.

Through situational satire, humour and crude slapstick, ‘Konjush’ weaves the story of two families living in Old Dhaka. To make the play enjoyable, Tariq Anam used the typical Dhakaia dialect (a mixture of Bangla and Urdu).

The story of the play goes forward sketching a sixty-year-old, very miserly person, Haider Ali. He does not wish to spend even for his own son Kazim and daughter Laili. He has a big amount of money hidden in a pot in his garden. Kazim is in love with neighbour Marjina, while Laili has a relationship with Bodiuzzaman, son of Haider’s friend Aslam Beg. The plot of the play comes to a climax when Haider Ali himself plans to marry Marjina. The story moves forward from this point.

Tickets for today’s show will be available in front of the hall before the show.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, today
