Kathmandu, Dec 30
A Nepali adaptation of the famous play ‘Mitrachi Gost’ by renowned Indian playwright Vijaya Tendulkar is giving audiences in the capital an opportunity to witness a story of friendship and love among friends of different sexual orientation.
Titled ‘Saathi ko Katha’ or friend’s story in Nepali, the play revolves around the complex story of a friend trying to help a friend caught in a difficult same-sex relationship.
This story between characters named Suni, Nama, Dalbi and Pandu is a true reflection of our present society, where friendship and love play supreme as far as relationship between the youth are concerned. It also highlights the social stigma attached to same-sex relations in the society.
Talented young artist Renuka Karki is debuting as a director through this play while seasoned artists Sushma Niroula, Sharada Adhikari, Anil Subba, Suryaman Limbu and Aayush Pyakurel play the protagonists in the play. The play has been translated into Nepali by Sagar Chand.
The play is being performed at the Mandala Theatre in Anamnagar, Kathmandu once every afternoon except Monday. With an additional show on Saturdays, the play, presented by Silent Act, will be screened until coming January 6. (RSS)
