Prabashi & UTSAV present: বসন্তবিভ্রাট/Spring Fever

Saturday, May 18, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

With the winter finally saying adieu in Portland , we Bengalis in greater Portland area need to find out a way to celebrate ‘বসন্ত’ Basanta (Spring), the season of new beginnings. This is a season that brings with its arrival an array of colors. This new beginning has inspired Bengalees for  years, and given us beautiful pieces of art, music and literature. To add to that … come celebrate  Basanta  with UTSAV’S second original production “Basanta Bibhraat/Spring fever”, presented exclusively by Prabashi-Bengali Association of Portland.

A romantic comedy woven into the post-independence Zamindari era of Bengal, you’ll laugh yourself silly when we take you through a joy-ride of mishaps, family misunderstandings and spilled secrets which eventually come together at the play’s climax. At heart, it is a simple story of love and we hope to entertain and inspire you. The entertainment lasts approximately 120 minutes (a few surprises included!). If you are looking for an evening that is both historical and hysterical, why not join us? Come, celebrate the magic of love with UTSAV’S second original production “Basanta Bibhraat/Spring fever”, brought to you by Prabashi-Bengali Association of Portland.

Oh, and in case you thought that was all,
We have another surprise, for one and for all!
 So, take out our hats, take out your shawls,
It’s a Zamindari costume competition, after the ball!
It’s time to ask the jury, and ask them mirrors on the walls,
Pray tell me who is the grandest and fairest of them all? 

There will be a secret panel of judges amongst the audience who will give out a best Zamindari costume prize. So, reserve your seats now! It maybe you!

So don’t forget to mark your calendar and please book your tickets today …..
