Overview


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', that has shaped modern Marathi theatre.
Alekar is widely recognized for his ability to portray the many deceptions and fallacies of Indian society, and his plays depict with wit and sensitivity, a world unable to come to terms with modernity and stifled by tradition. The six plays-'The Dread Departure' (Mahanirvan), 'Deluge' (Mahapoor), 'The Terrorist' (Atirekee), 'Dynasts' (Pidhijat), 'Begum Barve', and 'Mickey and the Memsahib' (Mickey ani Memsahib) -are divided thematically into two sections and both sections include introductions by noted theatre critic, Samik Bandyopadhyay. The book also includes 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.
