Girish Karnad's Collected Plays

The tale of a mythic king’s aggression against his offspring and his desperation to escape the curse of old age laid upon him in the prime of life. The anxieties that torment a middle-class Family as their daughter awaits the arrival of the ‘suitable boy’ from abroad whom she has never met. The morphing of the city of Bangalore, whose founding myth celebrates its human ambience, into India’s ‘Silicon Valley’ where strangers are thrown together, get entangled and are violently pulled apart. In the Plays of Girish Karnad, one of our finest playwrights, time, family, love and sexual aggression resound from the mythic past into the Contemporary megalopolis.The three Plays collected in this volume not only span Karnad’s creative graph from his first play, Yayati, to his most recent, boiled beans on Toast, but also chart out the themes that have disturbed and shaped Indian Drama since Independence.The volume includes an extensive introduction by theatre scholar Aparna Bhargava Dharwadker, which analyses Karnad’s Work in the context of modern Indian Drama.
