This volume brings together a collection of three plays written by Gurcharan Das during his twenties. An introduction by the renowned playwright himself, adds to its value. Larins Sahib is a historical play set in the confused period after the death of Ranjit Singh when the British first arrived in Punjab. This prize-winning play explores the development of the hubris, which brings about the hero’ s downfall. Larins Sahib has been performed in major Indian cities, and at the Edinburgh Festival. Mira, ‘ a rite of Krishna for five actor-dancers’ , premiered at the La Mama Theatre in New York in 1970. It explores the phenomenon of sainthood through the story of Mirabai, the sixteenth century Rajput poetess-saint. The New York Times called it ‘ remarkable in the way it combined Indian legend with the sophistication of Western total theatre … [it] has something of the quality of a dream ritual’ . 9 Jakhoo Hill, the third play in this series, is set in the aut umn of 1962 in Shimla. It examines a number of themes— the changing social order with the rise of a new middle class, the incestuous obsessions of an ageing uncle, the hold of Indian mothers on their sons, and the eventual betrayal of sexual love. This is a book that both the general reader and the theatre buff would love to read and possess. Printed Pages: 208.
