‘Tringsha Shatabdee’ slams women violence


"If someone else's sister is insulted, it doesn't matter to you; tomorrow if your sister is raped, will you find someone next to you?”- Such is the slogan in protest against the recent cases of violence against women by Swapnadal which has organized a special staging of 'Tringsha Shatabdee' at the Experimental Theater of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at 7 pm.

‘Tringsha Shatabdee’ is an adaptation of Indian playwright Badal Sarker’s work with the same title. The play has been adapted and directed by Zahid Repon.

The play mainly portrays genocides that took place at different times in the world through interrogations of some historical characters like Einstein (who invented the theory of making atom bomb), Major Ferebee (the pilot of the aircraft that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima), and Major Claude Eatherly (who carried the nuclear bomb to Nagasaki and later became insane on his realisation of the crime).

Besides, it also addresses liberation war of Bangladesh, 2003 invasion of Iraq, on-going conflicts in the Middle East, Christchurch mosque shootings, attack on Nusrat in Feni and others.

Swapnadal artistes Juyena Shabnam, Fazle Rabbi Shukorno, Samad Bhuiya, Shishir Sikdar, Shakhawat Shyamol, Zahid Ripon and others will act in the play.
