Post-insurgency play Sakhi opens at Shilpee
Apr 12, 2018-
Sakhi, a play about the effects of the ten-year long Maoist insurgency, opened at Shilpee Theatre in Battisputali, in the Capital, on Wednesday. Written by Ramesh Ranjan Jha, the play is directed by Ghimire Yubaraj.
Speaking about the play, writer Jha has said that Sakhi is an attempt to bring the ripples created by the ten-year-long insurgency onto stage. “There is widespread disenchantment with the war among the Nepali people. Even people who were not involved in the war directly have had to suffer its consequences. In Sakhi, we have tried to present the effects of the war and its consequences on the lifestyle of Nepalis,” Jha said.
Prior to this, the play was already staged in Charikot, Janakpur and Pokhara.
The play features actors Diben Karki, Jhaken BC, Namaraj KC, Suresh GC, Sulav Pandey, Bibek Tiwari, Nilesh Jha, Sabin Katel, Priyanka Jha and Rambhajan Kamat, among others.
The play will be staged every day at 5:30 pm, with an additional show on Saturday, and will run through April 21.
