The travelling theatres industry, called mobile theatre, is a one-of-its-kind institution, without any parallel in India, and even in the world. Hundreds of people – artistes, technicians, support staff – travel from one corner of the state to the other corner (sometimes even outside the state) staging full-scale dramas on makeshift huge theatre halls, that can house hundreds, erected within days. Once the performance is over, the entourage moves to another place dismantling and carrying with them the tent and the equipment. The mobile theatres have over the years not only entertained the people in the countryside, but also generated employment for thousands transforming itself into an industry. This book looks at the phenomenon of mobile theatre from a historical perspective. Click here to buy online
