Two popular plays titled ‘Tragedy Palashbari’ and ‘Condemned Cell’, by two prominent theatre troupes, will be staged today evening at two separate venues of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Theatre troupe Prachyanat will stage its 30th production ‘Tragedy Palashbari’ today at 7pm at the Experimental Hall of BSA, while Prangonemor will stage its notable play ‘Condemned Cell’ at the BSA’s National Theatre Hall at the same time.

The play ‘Tragedy Palashbari’ depicts the tragic collapse of a nine-storey factory at Palashbari in April 2005, the Spectrum Sweater and Knitting Factory situated in Savar’s Palashabri area, that collapsed in the middle of the night killing 64 garment workers and injuring several others. The play has been created to pay tribute to those RMG worker victims who died in the collapse of a nine-storey factory at Palashbari in April 2005.

The story centres around RMG worker named Tarabhan, who, facing a dire situation at home, moves to the capital from a northern district of the country and takes up a job at the Spectrum RMG factory.

On the other hand, in ‘Condemned Cell’, the story and the characters are imaginary. With the theme of the Liberation War in 1971, where people of Bangladesh were made to suffer brutally at the hands of the Pakistani forces, the Razakars and Al Badrs, where so many people lost their lives. Imaginary stories and characters are depicted through the play.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 7pm, today
