 Of the two plays in this volume, The Terrace (Kumarni Agashi) is an unsettling expose of repressive sexual morality; while Tell Me the Name of a Flower (Koi-punn Ek Phool Nu Naam Bolo Tho?) unravels a murder mystery through the lives of a theatre company. Both feature amongst the best-known works of contemporary Gujarati drama.  

Madhu Rye is one of the best known playwrights writing in Gujarati. His work received wide attention in the\ early 70s and he has continued to interest succeeding generations of theatre practitioners ever since.
