Book summary: Five Plays


In the five plays in this anthology, the mother of a Naxalite martyr 'discovers' her son (and in the process, herself) a year after his death; a slave enslaved by an ancient bond discovers too late that the bond had turned to dust years ago; a ventriloquist intensely in love with his `speaking doll' loses his voice to throat cancer; a son, too late, acknowledges his mother, who has been outcast and branded a witch by the community; and a traditional water-diviner rises to a different role, immediately becoming a threat to the administration.
