Theatre troupe Aryanak Natyadal staged its acclaimed play Mayur Singhasan at National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy on Monday.

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

The play also addresses issues like religious bigotry, class struggle, plight of theatre artistes and others and gives the viewers a glimpse into the sacrifices of theatre artistes and activists during ‘60s and the later years.

‘Mayur Singhasan is our 32nd production and today we staged the 117th show of the play,’ said Apu Rahman, a member of Aryanak Natyadal, told New Age.

Mamunur Rashid, Mannan Hira, Tamalika Karmakar, Tajin Ahmed, Amanul Haque Helal and others acted in the play.

‘The play depicts our rural tradition and culture and also portrays the life and struggles of theatre artistes during ‘60s. The actors deserve kudos for their performance,’ Sharfin Akter, an audience member, told New Age.
