Maxim Gorky’s ‘The Lower Depths’ to be staged at Nat Mondol

Famous Soviet writer and five time nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature Maxim Gorky’s play “The Lower Depths” is set to be staged at Dhaka University’s Nat Mondol from May 7 to 11 at 7pm each day. The play was translated by Tanvir Mokammel and is directed by Tanvir Nahid Khan. The production is produced and moderated by the Theatre and Performance Studies Department of Dhaka University.

Tanvir Nahid Khan who is a lecturer at the Theatre and Performance Studies Department said in a recent statement that this play written by Gorky in 1901 is a timeless classic. He also said that the play is a distorted reflection of present times, and the homeless, stateless and war stricken people around the world, and how it shows that this situation is not just because of our socio-political system. He explained that the play reflects the lower income people’s social, economic, and cultural life and struggles, which is ultimately the foundation to a better future for this planet.

He also said that this department’s past productions have been an example of rich creative expressions, and hopes that this one will fall in the same line too. He also thanked the teachers and students of his department for their help with the production.
