Prachyanat stages ‘Raja Ebong Onnyanya’ at BSA today

Theatre troupe Prachyanat’s much acclaimed production ‘Raja Ebong Onnyanya’ (King of the Dark Chamber) will be staged at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) today.

Directed by Azad Abul Kalam, the play has been adapted from Rabindranath Tagore’s play ‘Raja’. The play Raja tales of a utopian land where the king’s presence is felt in the peace, harmony and disciplined lives of the people. In this land, the king is never seen and he is not ostentatious or greedy. The director takes the original story and treats it with a new approach, portraying the omnipresent ruler as a metaphor that stands as a force against chaos, exploitation and imperialism.

The probable cast of the play includes Azad Abul Kalam, Rahul Anand, Rizvi, Touhidul Islam Shatabdi Wadud, Shahed Ali, Tapan Majumder, Sanjida Priti, Bakar Bakul, Saiful Islam Journal, Ripon, Koli, Rafique, Shorna and others.
