Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) will stage world famous play ‘Hamlet’ this evening at its National Theatre Hall in Segun Bagicha of the capital. The play will be brought to the stage as part of the ongoing ‘Jatiya Natya Utsab 2020’ (National Theatre Festival 2020) organised by Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation.  

‘Hamlet’, originally written by William Shakespeare, has been translated and adapted by late noted Bangladeshi writer Syed Shamsul Haq and directed by eminent director Ataur Rahman. ‘Hamlet’ is a play that undertakes a profound exploration of moral dilemmas; it is also audacious and comic-tragedy with the themes of murder, distrust, clandestine affairs, palace-conspiracy and revenge. The play dramatises the revenge Prince Hamlet is instructed to enact on his uncle Claudius. Claudius had murdered his own brother, Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet, and subsequently seized the throne, marrying his deceased brother’s widow, Hamlet’s mother Gertrude.

The production gets a new dimension as poems and songs by Rabindranath Tagore, Jibanananda Das and Syed Shamsul Haq have been incorporated with interference of light comedy of traditional jatrapala.


 
On the other hand, as part of the festival, popular Chattogram-based theatre troupe Tirjak Natyadal will stage its play ‘Tarangbhanga’ at the Experimental Theatre Hall at the same time.

With the theme ‘Jongibaad- Obokkhoy-Durniti, Manbey Na E Sangskiti’ (This culture will not obey militancy, decadence and corruption), the 18-day festival is being held in all 64 districts simultaneously. The festival has been organised in association with Ministry of Cultural Affairs and BSA.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, today
