Tagore's 'Shey' to be staged at Shilpakala today

Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore's Shey will be staged at the Experimental Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy at 7:15pm today.

Shey is the 30th production of popular theatre troupe Padatik Natya Sangsad. The play has been adapted and directed by Debashish Ghosh from the collection of fantasy tales written by Tagore during the last days of his life for his nine-year-old granddaughter Poopey. In the 15 stories of the Shey collection, Tagore has created endless fantasies and to keep the flow, Shey as a character appears each time in a new story. Tagore's granddaughter Poopey is also a character in the series.
