Two audience-admired plays at separate venues today

Today, Dhaka audience can plan to enjoy two audience-admired plays at two prominent venues in the capital. Theatre troupe Nagorik Natya Sampradaya is going to stage yet another show of its 46th play ‘Galileo’, a newly-reformed production, at the Baily Road’s Mahila Samiti, while ‘Sonai Madhab’ by theatre troupe Loko Natyadal (Siddeshwari) will be staged at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha.

Professor Abdus Selim has translated the play ‘Galileo’ into Bangla based on ‘Life of Galileo’, also known as Galileo, a play by the twentieth-century German dramatist Bertolt Brecht with incidental music by Hanns Eisler.

The play includes Aly Zaker, Asaduzzaman Noor, Pantha Shahriar, Ruhe Tamanna Labonyo, Farhana Mithu, Abdur Rashid and Mostafiz Shaheen, among others, in different characters.

However, almost 30 years ago, ‘Galileo’ was brought to the country’s stage for the first time under the direction of noted playwright and actor Ataur Rahman. Though the play had been shown on a regular basis for the next 10 years at that time, the staging of the play was being stopped from staging for the last 20 years. Returning to the stage in a new form under the direction of Pantha Shahriar after so many years, ‘Galileo’ was staged for the first time on October 5 last year at the Mahila Samity in the capital.

On the other hand, the production ‘Sonai Madhab’ is based on a story from Mymensingh Geetika, a collection of traditional ballads. Directed by Liaqaut Ali Lucky, the music of the production was done by Mostafa Anwar Swapan. ‘Sonai Madhab’ weaves a tale of romantic tragedy between Sonai and Madhab, the leading characters in the play. The play is a dramatic depiction that weaves woes, agonies and dilemmas of women in a traditional narrative way.

The cast of the play includes Roksana Akter Rupsa, Zahidul Kabir Liton, Liaqaut Ali Lucky, Rahima Khatun Nila and Mamun Hossain, among others.

The troupe brought the drama on stage in 1993, while the female characters of the drama were played by male artistes but in the new form, the female characters will be played by female artistes.

Where: Mahila Samiti, Baily Road and BSA, Segun Bagicha
