Brief Candle: Three Plays by Mahesh Dattani
Brief Candle: Three Plays by Mahesh Dattani
Description
Back of the Book

Brief candle three plays brings together the most recent work of Sahitya Akademi Award winner Mahesh Dattani as he continues to explore subjects that need to be addressed but are relentlessly brushed under the carpet of middle class morality incest, gender bias and death.

The title play is set in a hospital ward where terminally ill patients put p an energetic farce in memory of their friend who died of cancer. The blurring of lines between their romp and the events of their own lives leads to revelations that are both tragic and life affirming. In the radio play the girl who touched the stars Bhavna now an astronaut ready to take off on a mission into out space reflects on her past in this moment of glory only to confront the bitter truths she has tried to ignore all her life. The fragile fabric of familial relations is ripped apart in thirty days in September when memories of a traumatic past return to haunt a mother and her daughter.

Playful and poignant devastating and redemptive these critically acclaimed plays lay bare the far reaching consequences of the choices we make confirming Dattani as one of India’s foremost dramatists.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
