Padatik’s ‘Pake Bipake’ at BSA tomorrow

Padatik Natya Sangsad’s much-acclaimed production ‘Pake Bipake’ will be staged at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) tomorrow.

Written by Manoj Mitra, the play has been directed by Sanjeev Kumar Dey. 

The play depicts the suffering and sorrows of poor in a village. In the story, it can be seen that Janardhan is coming forward singing with a broken throat along a village path on a quiet night. Suddenly a poisonous snake comes out of nowhere and bites him. Janardhan screams and runs along the light of a lantern where a man is sitting with a basket. That man doesn’t look back as Janardhan was screaming for help but gestures for him to leave. Thus, the story of the play goes on.

The probable cast of the play includes Shakhawat Hossain Shimul, Imran Khan, Ekhlasur Prant, Jinat Islam and others.
