About this Item

In an unusually irreverent text that plays with the traditional Marathi musical mode of the mourning keertan and the theme of death, Satish Alekar`s The Dread Departure tells the story of a dead man who will be cremated the way be wants to be and no other way. He lives on as a dead man till he stinks and his son battles with the civic authorities to honour his father`s last wishes, while his widow gets enamoured of a ghostly lover, `the third man from the left` of the pall bearers. The play has rich dose of black humour, pure fun, and the sense of a community coming to terms with death. Printed Pages: 150. Bookseller Inventory # 4303
