Bohurupee is a Bengali premier theater group. Bohurupee was founded in 1948 by several active members who left the Indian People's Theatre Association. The group was created to present the experimental Bengali drama in unusual form.
After breaking away from Indian People's Theatre Association, prominent Bengali theater personalities like Sombhu Mitra, Bijon Bhattacharya created Bohurupee in 1948. The group came into prominence as a composite drama form. This period was a period of struggle for Bohurupee. Between 1950 to 1958 they directed multiple important plays. They staged Rabindranath Tagore's play 'Char Adhyay' in 1951. In 1958 they stage another work of Tagore - Raktakaravi. In Putulkhela (1958), which was a depiction of Ibsen's Doll's House, Bohurupee touched a sensitive contemporary issue in bold manner.
