Ahmed Sofa's ‘Moron Bilash’ to go on stage
Eminent philosopher, writer and critic Ahmed Sofa's classic novel “Moron Bilash” has been adapted into a play and set to be staged at Dhaka University's TSC auditorium. Directed and dramatised by Riaz Tareq, “Moron Bilash” will get its first show on December 12 at 6pm. Three youngsters, BM Sahidul Hasan, BM Jobol-e-Rahamat and Anita Ghosh, from the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies of Dhaka University will don the three lead roles in the stage adaptation. So, what motivated the director to adapt “Moron Bilash” after all these years? “Respect and love for Ahmed Sofa prevails among the young and puerile,” Riaz told the Dhaka Tribune. “But there is devotion among youngsters besides love and respect. Being a student of theatre and performance studies, I wanted to explore the love and amour for Ahmed Sofa with my artwork.” Riaz also expressed his gratitude towards his mentors and performers, who have paved the way for him and encouraged him to take the challenge of adapting Ahmed Sofa into a play. “I want to dedicate my artwork to them who’ve made Ahmed Sofa’s 'Moron Bilash' live,” Riaz added. “Moron Bilash,” the political novel by Ahmed Sofa, revolves around a wrecked politician named Fazle Elahi. The ex-home minister narrates his political career to Mawla Box lying on his sickbed. The witty and humorous confession of the politician, in fact, turns out to be a reflective commentary of the contemporary society and regional politics, and brings out the dirty secrets of the sub-continental politics and politicians, while scrutinising history, economics, religion, sexuality, polygamy in the light of the sub-continental politics.
