Hathe Kaamare at Punchi Theatre

Scripted and directed by Sumith Suranga and produced by Dayaratne Suwandahennedige, Hathe Kaamare is a Sinhala stageplay adapted from the story The Exile by master Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy.

The story is about the plight of a newlywed couple and how the young wife in her spousal fidelity and devotion sets out to rescue her husband who has been framed for a murder he didn’t commit.

This play looks at the themes of law and order and justice as well as sexual exploitation of the helpless. It is a play that looks at how the oppressive Tsarist regime was a heartless system of favouring the powerful at the expense of the weak.

It is a story that shows the praiseworthy determination of a loving young wife willing to brave the storm of a brutal system to rescue her love.

Hathe Kaamare features the music direction of Roshan Pallage, the artistic direction of Dayaratne Suwandahennedige, and features a host of well known artistes from the Sinhala stage.

The show will go on the boards at the Namel and Malini Punchi Theatre in Borella, on Sunday March 24, at 3.30pm and 6.30pm.
