Mad Theatre to stage plays in Guwahati today

Dhaka’s renowned theatre troupe Mad Theatre will stage their two popular productions ‘Rabindranather Dwitiya Bijaya’ and ‘Anne Frank’ in Guwahati, India today. The dramas will be staged consecutively at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra Auditorium.   

The play ‘Rabindranather Dwitiya Bijaya’, based on Rabindranath Tagore and Argentinian author Victoria Ocampo’s relationship during the ailing poet’s stay in Buenos Aires in the 1920s.

On the other hand, based on the book ‘The Diary of a Young Girl’, the play ‘Anne Frank’ depicts Anne Frank’s days in the Secret Annex during the Second World War. In the diary, she vividly wrote down her mental anguish, dreams, horrors of the war and more.

The head of Mad Theater Asadul Islam has written both plays. He said, “The plays ‘Rabindranather Dwitiya Bijaya’ and ‘Anne Frank’ are inevitably relevant in the present time. Mad Theatre’s production is sure to win the hearts of Guwahati audiences.”

Earlier, Mad Theater visited Guwahati twice with the play ‘Natyia Natim’. This is the troupe’s third visit to Guwahati.
