Two dramas will be staged in two days starting from today at the Experimental Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in the city. The drama presentations have been arranged by Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation to gather financial support for the treatment of Amir Hossain Suruj, an established theatre organiser. Loko Natyadal's (Bannai) drama Konjus and Prngonemore's most recent innovation "Condemned Cell" will be staged today and tomorrow back to back. Suruj underwent a brain stroke recently and is currently under medical treatment which requires a huge sum of money. Suruj has been engaged with theatres since his very childhood. He is the founder of two theatre troupes of the culturally rich district of Sirajganj. Theatre Manch and Shishu-Kishore Natya Manch are the two troupes that are very popular in Sirajganj.
Konjus is based on famed French playwright Moliere's popular work "The Miser". This Bangladeshi adaptation has been recreated by Tarik Anam Khan and directed by Kamrun Nahar Chowdhury. Condemned Cell has been written by Ananta Hira and directed by Awal Reza.
Prangonemore's new drama "Condemned Cell" is its tenth production. The whole drama has been set in a prison cell for convicts with death charges. The drama alludes to the Liberation War of 1971 but does not explicitly focus any specific incident.
