Kathmandu-based Nepali theatre troupe Aarohan Theatre staged monodrama 4.48 Psychosis at the Main Hall of Liberation War Museum at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the capital on Tuesday.

The play was staged on the fourth day of eleven-day international theatre festival titled Bottala Rangomela 2019, which has been organised by theatre troupe Bottala.

4.48 Psychosis is the final play written by British playwright Sara Kane. It was written at a time when Kane was suffering from severe depression.  Her fellow-playwright and friend David Greig has described the play as having as its subject the ‘psychotic mind’.

The play portrays the playwright’s mental and personal troubles. Aarohan Theatre member Nisha Sharma Pokharel acted in the monodrama, which has been translated by Viplob Pratik and directed by Morten Krogh.

Australian dancer Erika Jayne Goldsmith and local music troupe Shomogeet entertained the audience performing on Liberation War Museum premises.

Besides, Bottala honoured Dhaka-based theatre activist Haripada Sutradhar for his contribution to theatre scene.

The festival will end on November 26.
