Popular theatre troupe Batighar’s much-acclaimed production ‘Urnajal’ will be staged at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) this evening.
Written and directed by Bakar Bokul, the main theme of the play is religious bigotry. ‘Urnajal’ shows how religion can misinterpreted and used for the benefit of extremist outfits and people with dishonest intent.
Kahled and his cohorts try to establish one particular style of living forcing others to follow suit. His hatred towards bauls and calling their lifestyle ‘haram’ (forbidden) shock and surprise many but at the same time win support of some people.
The probable cast of the play includes Mukto Neel, Saddam Rahman, Sanjoy Goswami, Sweety Sarker, Khalid Hasan Rumi, Moniruzzaman Feroz, Shishir Sarker, Faisal Ahammed and others.
