‘Six Characters in Search of an Author’ on stage today

DL DESK, DHAKA
‘Six Characters in Search of an Author’ on stage today

Prachyanat School of Acting & Design is going to stage new play titled ‘Natyakarer Sandhane Chhoy Charitra’ (Six Characters in Search of an Author) today at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Produced by the students of 36th batch of Prachyanat, the play will be brought to the stage under the direction of Mitul Rahman. Khairul Alam Sabuj has translated the play from the original masterpiece ‘Six Characters in Search of an Author’, an Italian play by Luigi Pirandello, written and first performed in 1921.

An absurdist metatheatrical play about the relationship among authors, their characters, and theatre practitioners, it premiered at the Teatro Valle in Rome to a mixed reception, with shouts from the audience of ‘Manicomio!’ (‘Madhouse!’) and ‘Incommensurabile!’ (‘Incommensurable!’), a reaction to the play’s illogical progression. Reception improved at subsequent performances, especially after Pirandello provided for the play’s third edition, published in 1925, a foreword clarifying its structure and ideas.

The play had its American premiere in 1922 on Broadway at the Princess Theatre and was performed for over a year off-Broadway at the Martinique Theatre beginning in 1963.

Today’s show will remain open to all.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 6pm, today
