When Rajkamal Fakir’s Nepali adaptation of ‘An Inspector Calls’, an English play written by JB Priestley, was first staged in Nepal for a month in August. Fakir is now staging the play once again.
Set in the early nineties, the original play explores the death of a young woman, which leads a mysterious inspector to the Birling family. The play is considered one of the best in mid-20th-century English theatre. Fakir’s Nepali adaptation of the play follows the suicide of 24-year-old Muna Thapa.
The play falls in the thriller drama genre, which rarely gets explored in Nepal, and the entirety of it takes place in a living room of the Malla family. The play’s set is designed by director Fakir himself, and it features six actors—Avash Adhikari, Sarada Adhikari, Sarita Bhujel, Bijay Anand Tamrakar, Shishir Siwakoti, and Sadin Luitel.
