The four-day festival is currently running at Rabindrasadan and Ganendra Pradarshanshala in Kolkata. Subachan will stage their play on August 4, the closing day of the festival declared as Bangladesh Day by the organisers.
“Mohajoner Nao” unravels the life, work and philosophy of Shah Abdul Karim. Written by Shakoor Majid, the play has been directed by Sudip Chakraborty.
Apart from “Mohajoner Nao”, the closing ceremony will feature performances by Bangladeshi artistes.
