Shesher Kobita to be staged at BSA today

Popular theatre troupe Prangone Mor will stage its much acclaimed production Shesher Kobita, a romantic play of Tagore, at the National Theatre hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala academy at 7:00pm today.

The stage show of the play will bring Amit and Labanya, a romantic couple from Rabindranath Tagore’s text and their oft-read romance, alive on stage again for the theatre-goers this evening.

The roles of Amit and Labanya for the play will be played by real-life couple Nuna Afroz and Ananta Hira, often considered by theatre-lovers a brilliant chemistry of romance on stage.

Directed by Nuna Afroz and scripted by Ananta Hira, Shesher Kobita, the sixth production of Prangone Mor, revolves around Amit, an Oxford-return barrister, who is playful, bombastic, and erudite and has an immense aura. He, by fate, meets Labanya, a traditional Bangalee lady with the sense of sarcasm, through a car accident.

Instantly attracted to each other, their relationship develops over an exchange of letters that contain poems. However, with the passage of time, they have to face troubles and their faith in each other is tested as the story progresses.

Nuna Afroz, Shuvechchha and Shumi will act as Labanya while the role of Amit will be played by Ananta Hira and Ramiz Raju in the play.

Apart from them, Aual Reza, Sarwar Soikat, Tauhid Biplab, Ramij Raju, Asham Zahid, Rigan, Shimanto, Monir and others will play different roles in the play.
