The 11th Annual Brajanath Sharma Memorial Inter-State Drama Festival is currently being held at Rabindra Bhawan from 9th to 15th September 2017.
TODAY’S PLAY (12 September – 6:30 pm) – ‘Shabda’ of Jorhat will stage ‘Bodhidrumar Chaya’, written and directed by Ujjwal Paogam. The play shows how a true freedom fighter, after having braved a number of battles against terrorism, casteism, etc., keeps the banner of logic and honesty flying high.
TOMORROW’S PLAY (13 September – 6:30 pm) – Samahar will perform their well-applauded play ‘Charbak’, written and directed by Dr. Sitanath Lahkar. The play runs on the Charbak philosophy and its stiff opposition by the then powers. The breathtaking debate on the existence of ‘Soul’, coupled with inhuman casteism, make the play thought provoking.
YESTERDAY, Guwahati-based ‘Prayas’ presented ‘Oposriyomaan’. The playwright and the director of the play are Uddipta Kr. Bhattacharyya and Rituparna Kalita, respectively. The play depicted unimaginable misery of the people caused by devastating flood, which further aggravated due to the political game smeared with corruption and yellow journalism of a section of media. The drama ended with a hope of changed democratic and egalitarian society.
