A scene from Ami O Rabindranath.

Theatre troupe Prangonemor will stage its acclaimed play Ami O Rabindranath today at Nilima Ibrahim Auditorium of Bangladesh Mahila Samity.

Written and directed by Nuna Afroz, the play revolves around a fan’s imaginary encounter with Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore when the fan pays a visit to Shilaidaha Kuthibadi in Kushtia, where Tagore spent a few years of his life.

Through portrayal of different meetings with Tagore, the fan named Athai, played by Nuna Afroz, meets a Tagore aged 21, 29, 69 and 80 in Ami O Rabindranath.

The play begins with Athai and her friend Nehal travelling to Shilaidaha in Kushtia, where Tagore had lived for a while and wrote some of his most popular poems and songs.

When Athai gets separated from her friend, she begins to wonder inside Kuthibari and suddenly hears Tagore’s voice.

The meetings between Athai and Tagore reveal different stages of the poet’s life.
