Jun 14, 2018-Two plays, Upiya Ko Nibandha and Mr Fox and the School Boy, will be representing Nepal at the upcoming Kolkata International Children’s Theatre Festival, taking place in Kolkata starting June 17.
First staged in 2011, the play has since then been staged at two other festivals already and in one occasion at the Theatre Mall in 2016. The staging in Kolkata will mark the play’s 40th staging.
Mr Fox and the School Boy, written and directed by Che Shankar, is a relatively new play. Presented by Garden Theatre, the play was staged once at Rastriya Nachghar, in Jamal, earlier this week.
The fest in Kolkata is organised by the theatre group Kolkata Eso Natak Shikhi and is based on the theme “Safe Drive Save Life, Save Kids’ Lives.” Alongside Nepal and India, the fest will also see plays from countries such as South Africa, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Swaziland, among others.
The fest runs until June 21.
