Loko Natyadal, one of the most prominent theatre troupes in the country, will bring its play titled ‘Amra Tinjon’ on stage this evening at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in the capital.

The play will be staged as part of the ongoing ‘Jatiya Natya Utsab 2020’ (National Theatre Festival 2020) organised by Bangladesh Group Theatre Federation.  

Based on the story written by noted poet-writer Buddhadeb Basu with the same name, the play ‘Amra Tinjon’ is planned and directed by Liaquat Ali Lucky.

The story of the play revolves around three friends named Bikash, Asit and Hitangshu. In the year 1927, they used live in Purana Paltan. They were three inseparable friends who used to hang out together all the time. Reminiscing the old times at the present day, Bikash narrates their mutual love interest Antara, a girl had lived in their colony. However, fascinated by the charm of her beauty, the trio gives her a name after Mona Lisa while debating over her similarity with the Leonardo da Vinci imperishable creation.

The story moves forward from this point and ends with a tragic incident.

The cast of ‘Amra Tinjon’ includes Liaquat Ali Lucky, Masud Sumon, Fazlul Haque, Azizur Rahman Sujon, Ananya Nishi, Swadesh Ranjan Das Gupta, Sonai Akter, Zia Udiin Shipon and Shishir Kumar Roy, among others.
