Two shows of ‘Nityapuran’ today and tomorrow

Theatre troupe Desh Natok will stage two consecutive shows of its much-acclaimed production titled ‘Nityapuran’ today and tomorrow at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in the Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Adapted by Masum Reza, the play revolves around Ekalavya, a character from the epic Mahabharata. Mamun Chowdhury, the new actor will be playing the character of Ekalavya. Earlier, Dilip Chakraborthy played the role.

The maiden show of the play was staged at the Baily Road Mahila Samity Mancha in Dhaka on January 14, 2001. After the 86th staged in 2005, the staging of Nityapurana was postponed. After 12 years later, the play was staged again on November 10 in 2017.

This time, Desh Natok is staging the play with a new look, new cast, new set and costumes. Sushama Sarker plays the role of Draupadi. Earlier, the role of Draupadi was played by Shirin Khan Moni, Naznin Hasan Chumki and Bonna Mirza at different times.

‘Nityapuran’ or ‘The Eternal Meeting’ is a tragic story about an unsuccessful hero. Ekalavya wants to learn archery under the Gurukul of Guru Dronacharya, who rejects him. The irony here is that Ekalabya still manages to become an admirable archer.

Tickets will be available in front of the venue before the show.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7:30pm, today and tomorrow
