‘Jokhana’ is dramatization of a story by Biyash Rai from his story collection ‘Hiumajhi’.‘Jokhana’ is a story about a woman who lost her husband from the village during the 10 year world-war and how she had to face her destiny.
Me and my entire team are very excited that our play has been selected in the Nepal International Play Theatre Festival. This has encouraged us to work more. Talking about the play, when I read story writer Biyas Rai’s ‘Jokhana’ story, I was very much influenced to create a play based on it and made it. However, during the adaptation of this story into the play few changes were made. This subject will be discussed later on. I would like to show great appreciation to respected Biyash Rai for giving me this story and respected Rajan Mukarang Dai for showing great support during the adaptation of this story. I would also like to thank all the people who were involved in the production of the play directly or indirectly. We will discuss more on this after the play.
