Satyadev Dubey: A Fifty Year Journey through Theatre documents the work of Satyadev Dubey—director, actor, teacher and playwright. Dubey has been passionately involved in theatre since the early sixties. This book brings together essays, interviews and reviews by playwrights, actors and theatre critics as well as a selection from amongst Dubey’s prolific output of articles in the Mumbai press. It brings to light the phases of Dubey’s work, his style and method of direction, his system for actor training, the furious debates about theatre and the freedom of expression that he was involved with.
