The book, a collection of research papers on the trends and issues in the plays of Badal Sircar, Girish Karnad, Vijay Tendulkar, Mahesh Dattani, Mahasweta Devi and some others, is designed to cater the needs of the students and research scholars of the universities of India and abroad. The introductory chapter of the book provides a broad introduction to the growth and development of the genre called 'Indian Drama in English' and the circumstances in which the plays have been written and read in the last forty odd years. In each of the following chapters, the major issues of the notable plays from the above-mentioned playwrights are discussed threadbare. The research papers included in this volume also examine some of the most heated controversies of the contemporary times, such as the anti-theatrical debate, the legitimacy of sectarian violence, discourses of gender, perspectives of ecofeminism, disability rights movements, pseudo liberalism, power politics, and so on.
