Book Summary
The Mahabharata has, over the centuries, inspired writers and artists to produce a rich crop of texts which interpret, question, dialogue and engage with various facets of the multi-layered, sprawling epic. This play is part of that tradition. Structured in the form of a rehearsal in progress, an interesting blend of reality, fiction, reverence and irreverence, the playwright explores many of the ethical and moral questions that the Mahabharata raises, in the voices of important characters from the epic saga, each interrogating and challenging the dominant narrative. In the course of the play we listen to Draupadi, Kama, Eklavya, Yudhishthir, Uttara, and Ashwalthama use their own experiences to question what occurs and to critique the master narrative.
