Eminent Tollywood actress Mumtaz Sorcar and her friend Mayuri Bhattacharya who have been organizing self defense workshops for women and seminars on women empowerment all over the city are again back with a play on a socially relevant issue. Child abuse is the topic which the actress has selected for the upcoming play. The play which will be enacted is 30 Days in September which is written by eminent playwright Mahesh Dattani. The rehearsal of this upcoming play was going on in Muktangan when team Sholoana Bangaliana met the key actors of the play including Mumtaz Sorcar, Joy Sengupta, Shataf Figar and Mahua Bhattacharya.
The play revolves around a girl named Mala (Mumtaz Sorcar) whose relationships never last for more than a month. Things take a turn when it is revealed that her relationships do not last due to a history of abuse from her uncle. This fact was known to her mother who refuses to blame the uncle but lashes out on the daughter. What will happen to Mala then is what the audience will get to see in the play.
“Plays have been and are still one of the vital mediums of spreading awareness amongst people. With the help of plays, we can very easily spread any message to the people. So we thought taking up this issue and presenting it to the people in the form of a play. This will also force the people to think of such issues which have such a grave effect on the lives of the people” said Mumtaz Sorcar in between the rehearsal session.
Directed by Mayuri Bhattacharya, the play will be performed on the 29th of June at G. D. Birla Sabhaghar from 7pm onwards. Do not miss to grab your ticket.
