Padatik’s ‘Pake Bipake’ at BSA tomorrow

Padatik Natya Sangsad will stage its much-acclaimed production ‘Pake Bipake’ at the   experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) tomrrow.

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

The play depicts the sufferings and sorrows of poor people in a village. In the story, it will 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 and bites him. Janardhan screams and runs towards 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 that man pays no heed to it.  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.
