Description

This first comprehensive anthology of modern Indian drama brings together 155 modern plays in different Indian languages.

These plays represent the thematic and formal concerns of contemporary Indian playwrights. The volume includes plays by:

Sriranga / Vijay Tendulkar / Mohan Rakesh / Badal Sircar / Girish Karnad / Satish Alekar / K N Pannikar / Chandrasekhar Kambar / Utpal Dutt / Mahasweta Devi and others. While some plays express profound socio-political concerns, others address the fundamental issues of human life through the reinterpretation of myths, and folktales. The anthology thus represents the full range of the form and content of modern Indian theatre.
