UNB, Dhaka :
Theatre festival Notuner Utsab - 2019 concluded on Thursday at Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy's National Theatre Hall with Mangaldeep Foundation's new play Lottery, performed by visually impaired actors- which garnered massive applause from the audience.
Directed by Nagorik Natya Sampradaya's Mostafiz Shahin, the play featured visually impaired actors on stage, with eminent actor-director Sara Zaker being the dramaturge.
Despite being visually impaired, the performers brilliantly exceeded the expectations of the audience through their tantalizing performances.
Lottery narrated the story of middle-class crisis and inconsistencies in the name of yellow journalism, revolving a lottery ticket.
Renowned actor, theatre activist and former state minister of cultural affairs Asaduzzaman Noor applauded the performers after the staging of the play.
"The play became an exceptionally good creation because of all these actors. They read the script with their inner-eyes, felt the play within their beautiful soul and tremendously mastered the story with their amazing acting.
