G. P.Deshpande's plays have a reputation for being dense in ideas, discussion and debate. This cycle of three plays (A Man in Dark Times/Past One o'Clock/ A Passage to Darkness) deals with the impact on human beings, and their relationships, of the collapse of the Communist ideal, and the vacuum left by the loss of belief.

G. P. Deshpande is a Marxist scholar, an academic, and a widely produced and translated playwright. 


Shanta Gokhale is a leading theatre critic and writer.
