The first full-length study of Badal Sircar, who brought theatre to the streets and to the masses in India! Badal Sircar (1925-2011) is one of the most important and influential figures in the history of post-independence Indian theatre. As a playwright, he contributed seminal texts which have inspired the country’s leading directors and continue to be produced by younger groups. In terms of form, he was responsible for Third (later called Free) Theatre, an urban theatre which was alternative, non-proscenium, mobile and very physical. As a theorist and philosopher of Indian theatre, he opened up the discourse to include concerns with democratic human interaction and a search for a more just and equitable society. As a teacher and mentor, he traveled widely across the country holding workshops which had a deep impact on hundreds of theatre workers, including some major directors. This book is a full-length, detailed study of Badal Sircar’s life and work, with its three distinct phases: the playwriting for the proscenium stage, with path-breaking texts like Evam Indrajit, Pagla Ghoda and Baki Itihas; the departure to non-proscenium physical theatre focused on the actor, with its social critique and commitment to conscientisation; and the dissemination phase of extensive workshops and mentoring.

Anjum Katyal's work is the first comprehensive study on the life and contribution of Habib Tanvir to Indian theatre history. A playwright, director, actor, journalist and critic, Tanvir is perhaps best known for the play Charandas Chor. However, his real significance in the history of post-Independence Indian theatre is that he signposted an important path for the development of modern theatre. His productions with Naya Theatre using Chhattisgarhi folk actors established how one could do modern theatre integrated with age-old-yet equally contemporary-folk culture on a basis of equality. Habib Tanvir: Towards an Inclusive Theatre explores various important aspects of Tanvir's theatre philosophy and practice as he experimented with both content and form. Starting with his early life and work, Katyal charts his professional trajectory from Agra Bazaar to Gaon Ka Naam Sasural, when he was searching for his true form, to Charandas Chor, which portrayed the eventual maturing of his style, and beyond, to cover his entire oeuvre.

This volume includes two plays: Indian History Made Easy ('Sukhapathya Bharater Itihas', first produced in 1976) and Life of Bagala ('Bagalacharitmanas', first produced in 1998) by renowned playwright Badal Sircar. Dealing with one of the most crucial periods in Indian history, namely British colonialism, Sukhapathya Bharater Itihas (1976) is significant in forging a unique relationship between form and content. To match the content, Sircar uses the form of classroom teaching. With Teachers instructing Students, he covers more than three hundred years of British rule without developing a 'story'. Bagalacharitmanas revolves around Bagala, who having lost his parents in childhood, is brought up and educated at his uncle's house where he suffers constant humiliation. The play is about how, through supernatural intervention, Bagala finds himself and ultimately stands up against injustice. Once he has gained courage, Bagala decides to throw away magic and act all by himself. The play reminds people that no change can be brought about by magic; it is only through human will and action that something worthwhile can be achieved. Along with a comprehensive Introduction, this volume includes an interview with Badal Sircar, production history of his plays, and a special photo section.
