After a long hiatus, theatre troupe Aryanak Natyadal’s acclaimed play Mayur Singhasan made a comeback on Sunday.

The play was staged at the on-going Sharadiya Natyautsab under way at Sri Sri Bordesshwari Kali Mandir in Rajarbag at 7:00pm on Sunday.

Mayur Singhasan, written by Mannan Hira and directed by Shah Alam Dulal, depicts the socio-political scenario of the 1960s.

The play also addresses issues like religious bigotry, class struggle, plight of theatre artistes and others.

It gives the viewers a picture of the sacrifices of theatre artistes and activists during 60s and the later years.

‘Mayur Singhasan is our 32nd production and we are staging it after a long time. We staged the 100th show of the play in 2009 and decided to focus on Rarang and others. We staged the 113th show of the play on Sunday,’ thespian Mamunur Rashid, chief of Aryanak Natyadal, told New Age.

The play will also be staged at Nilima Ibrahim Auditorium of Bangladesh Mahila Samity today.
