We work on our tradition, culture and heritage. We want to uphold these not only to the young generation of our own but also worldwide. Our cognition is our Liberation War held in 1971. To mitigate these purposes we always stage drama on different stages of our country and on the street.

We perform in different festivals arranged by notable organizations in our town Sylhet and other cities.

Our first work was on the culture and tradition of Tea Laborers. The name of the drama was ‘Jago Manush’ (Rise Human). This drama is about the tradition and culture of the people who work in tea garden.
After that we staged many other plays among them “Jointessory” was noteworthy. This drama is about one of our local tribal king who reigned in 1750.
