A three-day theatre festival, organised by Dhaka University Drama Troupe, has opened yesterday with staging the play ‘Indemnity’ by One Bangladesh at the TSC auditorium of Dhaka University. Scripted by Mannan Hira, the play is directed by Monowarul Haque.

Today, on the second day of the festival, theatre troupe Mohakal Natya Sampraday will bring its acclaimed play titled ‘Nilakhyan’ on stage at the same venue. Based on the short story ‘Shapure’ written by National Poet Kazi Nazrul Islam, the play has been adapted by Anan Zaman. Director Yousuf Hasan Arko uses the traditional narrative theatre technique to present the story of a snake-charmer.

Tomorrow, on the concluding day of the festival, theatre troupe Arshinagar will stage its play titled ‘Rahu Chandler Har’—an adaptation of Abhijit Sen’s novel. Directed by Reza Arif, the play depicts the story of the gypsy community, which has lived on the margins of society across the Indian sub-continent.
