Comprising # The Dread Departure # Deluge # The Terrorist # Dynasts # Begum Barve # Mickey and the Memsahib Satish Alekar has written, acted in, directed, and produced some of the most influential and progressive plays of post-independence India, and is part of the trinity, with Vijay Tendulkar and Mahesh Elkunchwar, who have shaped modern Marathi theatre. Alekar locates himself firmly in the performance rather than literary tradition, and is recognized internationally for his ability to use the stage to portray the many deceptions and fallacies of Indian society. His plays depict with wit and sensitivity, a world unable to come to terms with modernity and stifled by tradition. This collection includes six of Alekar’s plays translated by Gauri Deshpande, Urmila Bhirdikar, Alok Bhalla with Jayant Dhupkar, Pramod Kale, Shanta Gokhale, and Priya Adarkar. The plays are divided thematically into two sections and both sections include introductions by noted theatre critic, Samik Bandyopadhyay. The book also contains an insightful interview of Alekar by Bandyopadhyay, notes on the production histories of the included plays, and a special section containing photographs of the performances of these plays.
