Actors Pilgrims Kings And Gods


Author: Anuradha Kapur

250 pages. The Ramlila at Ramnagar, Varanasi is a unique theatrical and religious event, a month-long renactment of the Ramayana story which is now an annual tradition. The performance covers a whole town and involves an entire community from its Maharajah to its thousands of common people. This work documents and recreates the event; provides a rare insight into an Indian community’s negotiation with religious lore; unravels and explores a unique theatrical tradition; and above all offers us a piece of life – earthy, rambunctious, and sacred. The author, theatre critic and scholar, is a lecturer at the National School of Drama, New Delhi. Hardcover with jacket, a new book, very light wear to jacket and edges. 8vo.
