By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 24 � Adapted to fit the social milieu of the State, AR Gurney�s widely-acclaimed romantic drama Love Letters will be presented as Moromor Bondhu by Zerifa Wahid Production on July 25 at the Rabindra Bhawan here.

Addressing mediapersons here on Wednesday, the cast of the play Zerifa and Kopil Bora including the director Abinash Sarma called out to the theatre lovers of the capital city to support this latest venture emphasizing that this will be a notable experience for all of them and a charming treat to the senses.

�Our production house has always been stressing on giving new experiences to the theatre lovers through innovative techniques and thematic variations without compromising on quality,� said Zerifa mentioning that the medium of performing arts has an important role in bringing the positive changes in the society. Regretting that the State did not have enough halls for the theatre groups to showcase their creativity, Zerifa said that the authorities need to take concerted efforts to promote performing arts as it is a powerful medium.

�We need to take theatre to the grassroots and this can be achieved only when all the small towns and rural areas have access to a good auditorium,� observed Zerifa adding that her role in Moromor Bondhu brought a challenging moment in her career. The play is all about letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences.

Jimoni Chaudhuri has adapted the play into Assamese and director Abinash Sarma said that the emotional component of the play will appeal to the theatre lovers here.

On the other hand, Kopil Bora observing on the simplicity of the play said that such kind of plays can be staged at any place.
