Charity show of ‘Konjush’ tomorrow

Theatre troupe Loko Natyadal (Banani) will stage a charity show of its much-acclaimed play ‘Konjush’, an adaptation of the Molière satire ‘The Miser’, tomorrow at 7pm at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Proceeds from the show will be handed over to sculptor Ferdousi Priyabhashini for her treatment. Ferdousi Priyabhashini has been suffering from multiple health complications, including diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

‘Konjush’ belongs to the ‘Comedy of Morals’ genre, which is designed to address vices such as hypocrisy, pride, greed, social pretensions and nepotism. The play is adapted by Tariq Anam Khan and directed by Kamrun Nur Chowdhury. Tariq Anam Khan’s adaptation of the play presents a ‘Dhakaiyya’ (a native of Old Dhaka) protagonist—a rich old man named Haider Ali. Through Haider Ali’s story, ‘Konjush’ attacks the selfish and opportunistic tendencies of the elite.

The cast of the play includes Khairul Alam, Kamrun Nur Chowdhury, Shamshad Begum, Mostofa Anwar Swopon, Zahidur Rahman, Zahid Chowdhury, Abdullah Al Harun, Monika Biswas and others.

Tickets will be available in front of the hall before the show. Besides, one can contact at 01732681187 for advance ticket.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 6:30pm, tomorrow
