Mumbai Traps: collected plays

By Anju Makhija

An NCPA Presentation

This volume includes six plays with Mumbai as the central character, cast in manifold shades. We experience social and surreal situations, mysterious and mystical happenings with an artistic playfulness. These plays serve as a depiction of city life in a state of perpetual restlessness.

Anju Makhija is a Sahitya Akademi Award-winning poet, playwright and translator. She has published three poetry collections, co-translated Seeking the Beloved, the mystical verse of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, co-edited a three-volume series of Indo-English plays and anthologies related to partition, women and young readers.

The panel discussion by Dolly Thakore, Denzil Smith, Uma Narain, Rochelle Potkar, Sonu Anand and others will be followed by audience participation.

Admission on a first-come-first-served basis.
