Girish Karnad's Plays: Performance and Critical Perspectives

Tutun Mukherjee (Editor)
Synopsis This volume both interrogates and celebrate the outstanding achievement of Girish Karnad as a dramatist, engaged in reinventing the Indian theatre traditions over the past forty-five years. Jargon-free and insightful, the book probes Karnad’s inclusive dramaturgy manifested in his deft handling of various literary tropes and stage props. All major plays of the distinguished dramatist are explored and revaluated in their larger socio-cultural, historical, gender, caste and performance contexts, preceded by a long and rewarding conversation with the playwright, many of them supported by photographs of productions. The thirty-two contributors to this definitive study belong to the top shelf of drama/theatre critics and sahardayas from India and abroad.
