The play will be brought to the stage on the seventh day of two-week festival ‘Baishakhi Natya Utsab’. Supported by Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation, Mahila Samiti has organised the festival.

Dramatised by Soumya Sarkar and Samina Luthfa Nitra, the play is directed by Mohammad Ali Haider.

The play ‘Crutcher Colonel’ portrays the life of one of the masterminds of the November 7 coup Colonel Taher, who was executed in 1976. During the Liberation War, a high-achieving officer of the Pakistan army Lieutenant Colonel Taher was appointed the Sector Commander for Sector 11.
