On the occasion of completing the eventful journey of 36 years, which will be marked on July 14, theatre troupe Mahakal Natya Sampraday is going to organise a year-long programme.

The year-long celebration will be featuring staging plays in different countries, workshop, bringing new plays on stage, theatre festival and others.

As a part of the celebration, the troupe will stage the 50th show of its much-acclaimed production titled ‘Nilakhyan’ today at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.
