The Court is in Session, Kanayadan, The Vultures, and Kamala; Girish Karnad’s Hayavadana, Tughlaq, Naga Mandala, and The Fire and the Rain; Mahasweta Devi’s The Mother of 1084; Mahesh Dattani’s Final Solutions, Tara, Dance Like a Man, and Bravely Fought the Queen; Habib Tanvir’s Charandas Chor; Indira Parthasarathy’s Auranzeb; and Badal Sircar’s Evam Indrajit. The book focuses on different aspects of their plays and shows how the Indian Drama in English, while maintaining its relation with the tradition, has made bold innovations and fruitful experiments in terms of both thematic and technical excellence.
