Political Plays

G.P. Deshpande (Author) Shanta Gokhale (Translator)
Synopsis G. P. Deshpande is a Marxist scholar, an academic, and a widely produced and translated playwright. Every one of his plays has been put on stage by major directors. His plays have a reputation for being dense in ideas, discussion and debate. This cycle of three plays—A Man in Dark Times, Past One O’Clock, A Passage to Darkness—deals with the impact on human beings, and their relationships, of the collapse of the Communist ideal, and the vacuum left by the loss of belief. The volume contains, in addition to the playscripts, a long interview with the playwright, and introductory essays by both the author and theatre critic Samik Bandyopadhyay.
