2020-07-19 20:00:00 2020-07-19 05:30:00 Asia/Kolkata Sutradhar Presents Birjees Qadar Ka Kunba

Originally written as ‘La Casa De Bernarda Alba’ by Federico García Lorca in the 1930s, the present translation in Urdu was done by versatile Hindi poet, short-story writer, essayist, literary critic, translator, journalist and Sahitya Akademi award winner, the late Dr. Raghuvir Sahay.

The stage opens to the house of the iron-fisted Birjees Qadar, the matriarch of the clan who has just buried her second husband. She declares an 8 – year-long mourning for her 5 surviving daughters, the maidservants and Birjees’ mother Akhtari Begum.

A classic saga of repression, rebellion, love, sibling rivalry, loyalty, intrigue, betrayal, the depravity and the divinity of lust, a struggle between the natural instincts of man and the boundaries imposed by society, the dominion and suppression of woman over woman, the likes of which have seldom been seen on stage yet.

Featuring an all-female cast, this play is also about the depiction of the human, inhuman and the animal within us. Although the play is set in an Islamic household, the themes of oppression and struggle are universal and would hold true for any individual or society throughout history that has sought to be totalitarian in its aspect.
