Karma Coffee entertains audienceCultural Correspondent
Thought provoking comedy Karma Coffee was premiered on Friday at the Red Shift Coffee Lounge of Bay’s Galleria in Gulshan celebrating the Valentine’s Day.
The English play, written by writer Shazia Omar and directed by Amit Ashraf, features a day’s event in a young man’s life when he was forced to date with four women, set by his elder sister, to pick a suitable spouse.
One of the women is a successful executive who does not understand anything but money, another one is a health freak, the third one is a ‘stern feminist’, and the forth woman is a famous singer.
All the four dating scenes take place in a coffee shop named Karma Coffee, but the play never appears monotonous due to the witty dialogue dictions and spontaneous acting, which made the audience burst out in laughter.
But, the play is not just a mere entertainment portraying some weird events at a coffee shop, rather satirises the contemporary social milieu and addresses women issues such as early marriage, rape, stalking and dowry.
‘It’s an entertaining comedy dealing with the contemporary society,’ the playwright Shazia Omar told New Age.
A jam-packed audience enjoyed the premiere show. ‘The play was well written and entertaining one. I really enjoyed the show,’ Shibley Rahman, from Mohakhali, told New Age.
