Description

Bishwo Shahitto Kendro presents The Café

Bangla/English I 60 mins

The Café is the East London hub for a diverse group of British Bengalis who meet regularly to reflect on their lives and on current affairs. Examining loyalty, identity and roots, as well as the fallibility of human nature, this satirical play depicts the mismatched life of the Bengali Londoners stuck between the British mainstream and traditional Bengali culture.

The lucid language uses Horatian satire criticising vices and follies through mockery and playful wit.

Bishwo Shahitto Kendro, London (BSKL) is a non-profit voluntary organisation, which commenced its journey in 2002. BSKL has sought to create a 'home away from home' for the Bengali community in order to cherish the rich traditions of Bangladesh in the heart of this cosmopolitan city. Through a celebration of Bengali arts and aesthetics and a specific focus on literature, BSKL aims to build bridges between communities and reinforce the importance of the cultural legacy inherited by the British Bangladeshi.
