Radio station Betar Bangla showcased “A Season Of Bangla Drama” tonight at 8.45pm. That’s Betar Bangla on 1503 mw.

Dr  Mukid Choudhury took phone calls about the upcoming season of drama at the Brady Arts Centre. He spoke about “Ekti Asharhe Shopno” aka “A Fantastic Dream” being based on Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and stressed how the theatre is about physicality and movement.

He answered another caller and talked about Tagore,  intergenerational theatre, and the Movement Theatre.

The season is aimed primarily at the Bengali speaking community in London’s east end.

Other calls were addressed to the other studio guests who included Selina Shelley (“Jamuna”)  and Dr. Sheik Selim (arts and literature ambassador for Tower Hamlets).
