Momor Ghar: The Wax House to be staged
GUWAHATI: Momor Ghar-The Wax House, a venture of Zerifa Wahid Production, will be staged at the Madhabdeb Auditorium of Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra this weekend. The play will be staged on Saturday, June 9 at 7 PM and on Sunday, June 10 at 4 PM as well as 7 PM. A play that mirrors the flux in modern society, Momor Ghar has been written by noted playwright Himandra Kumar Barthakur.
Directed by Avinash Sharma, the play features noted actors of the Assamese industry like Zerifa Wahid, Kopil Bora, Mintu Baruah, Ranjan Sarma, Partha Hazarika, Debashree Das, Bijit Das, Debojit Deka, Khalin Bora and child artistes Kristi and Arunabh.
According to the director, the play was written several years ago, but the theme of the play still holds its relevance and the audience would be able to identify themselves with the thrust and mood of the plot.
"The play highlights the identity crisis we are facing. It is an attempt to express the message of saving the identity of the Assamese people and society," he said at a press conference held at the Guwahati Press Club.
Actress Zerifa Wahid, who is playing the role of a housewife in the play, said, "I'm playing the role of Manashi who represents the society. The play touches issues concerning the society at large - We are so caught up in the web of fulfilling our individualistic desires and ambitions that we have completely forgotten our responsibility to the society at large. In the process, we are destroying nature and going against the rule of nature.
Momor Ghar is the 10th stage offering from the production house established by Zerifa in 2007.
It has staged plays like Agnibristi, Pancharatna, Joke, Nagmandal, Napoleon, Purush, Wedding Album, Moromor Bondhu and Mrichhakatikam.
