Three plays to be staged at Shilpakala Academy today

Three theatre troupes will stage their respective theatrical productions at the three different venues of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital today. Theatre (Arambag), a popular theatre troupe of the country, will stage its 40th production titled ‘Draupadi Parampara’ today at the National Theatre Hall of BSA, while Shabdaboli Group Theatre will stage its 63rd production ‘Desire Under the Elms’ at the Experimental Theatre Hall and theatre troupe Bongolok will stage its second theatre production ‘Morter Oroshik’ today at the Studio Theatre Hall.

Written and directed by Prabir Dutta, the play ‘Draupadi Parampara’ depicts Draupadi’s sufferings in patriarchal society by showing her humiliation at the hands of the Kauravas after she was put on bet at a dice-game by Yudhishthira, the eldest Pandava. In the play, Tahmina Akter, Akifa Alam and Yusha Antara will perform the role of Draupadi. The other important casts of the play include Prabir Datta, Shahriar Alam, Shangkar Sarkar, Jahangir Kabir and Lelin Firozi.

On the other hand, the play ‘Desire Under the Elms’, written by American playwright Eugene O’Neill, depicts love, jealousy, sex, lust, shrewdness, conflict and death. The play shows widower Ephraim Cabot abandons his New England farm to his three sons who hate him, but share his greed.

In the play, Bulbul Ahmed Joy appeared as Ephraim Cabot while Anwar Shameem as Eben Cabot, Nabila Nasrin as Abbie. The other most important casts of the play include Yeacher Arafat, Jahirul Islam, TI Topu.

Moreover, based on Rabindranath Tagore’s famous satire ‘Oroshiker Sorgoprapti’, the play ‘Morter Oroshik’ has been written and directed by Shamima Shawkat Lovely. The play shows that a musical troupe is all set to perform, but suddenly a panic-stricken person enters the hall. All the performers feel disturbed while the person, called Gokulnath said some people want to kidnap him. The singer then starts talking to Gokulnath, and the latter unfolds the story of his past life.

Enam Tara Saki has designed costumes for the play, while the stage and lighting has been done by Junaid Eusuf. Besides, Shamima Shawkat Lovely composed the music and Samiun Jahan Dola did the choreography.
