Khorghosh & Kautwa – Hare and Tortoise was a part of the bilingual Theatre-in-Education programme. Khorghosh & Kautwa – Hare and Tortoise was performed in both English and Sylheti and had specific aims. These were to do with promoting the idea of the value of one’s personal identity; of one’s personal strengths – to have confidence in these; not allowing other people to undermine this confidence or den or belittle one’s personal identity and strengths. The starting-point for the programme was Aesop’s fable The Hare and the Tortoise. But the traditional moral is being reassessed as suggested in the above aims.
This production was was one of a series of bilingual Theatre-in-Education plays presented by the company in English and Sylheti-Bengali.
