Jan 3, 2017-
The play—Bhoko Ghar currently being showcased at Theatre Mall at Sundhara, has reached its final week. The play written by Govinda Bahadur Malla ‘Gothale’ and directed by Kedar Shrestha has been on stage since December 16.
According to Managing Director of Theatre Mall Elina Nakarmi, the play which now has only six stagings left, has received an overwhelming response from the audience.
Director Shrestha who also writes and plays himself has previously staged dramas like Upiyako Nibandha, and Man versus Mati. Shrestha said despite the response from the audience, they couldn’t extend this play as another play is slated to be staged right after.
Bhoko Ghar showcases the struggles of a family struggling with poverty and unempolyment.
The lack of resources to meet the dreams and aspirations is the main theme of the play.
“The play written by Gothale decades ago is still very relevant. With the change in time, people’s dreams and aspirations also change and soar but the struggles still resonate,” said director Shrestha. The play also uses various signs and symbols resonating the present time to make it more applicable to present situation.
Another aspect of the play that makes it remarkable is the performance of the artists. The play features actors like Aakash Magar, Shanti Giri, Sudam Shike, Sanjita Sanji and Abhay Baral who have previously worked in movies like Bijuli Machile, Fitkiri, Red Monsoon, Hostel Returns and others along with various plays.
The play will be staged till January 7 on Wenesday at 5 pm and Saturday at 1:30 pm.
